    in terms of just a simple job, i guess i just got my job in less than a month. Though when it comes to the permanent and best stable job, i guess it went around a year for me and i am still searching

      Misclicked, but I'll be back in the job market very soon once my internship runs out next month. I'm hoping I'll be able to get hired on with the same publication, but that's not something I'll be able to 100% depend on.

      Before getting this internship though, I had been looking for something for well over a year. Its still not a easy job market, despite what the job growth numbers are saying from the administration. The key is to just keep at it and not give up until you find something. Eventually, SOME job will open up and give that opportunity.

        I have been searching for about 7 months now. There have been options for a job but not one that I have wanted to take.

              I was looking for four months, it was not until I was job searching that I realised how desperately under qualified I am for just about everything in the whole freaking world. I took the first job I was offered and I hate it.

                Claire,

                We have all done jobs at some point that we have hated, let it be your motivation to gain as much experience as you can from this job, be the best at everything, and then use this new found experience to leap to a more desirable role.

                In my early years in Supply Chain, I very rarely stayed in the same role for more than 18 month, I gained my experience, got some achievements under my belt and than moved up the ladder to the next role, always ensuring that I travelled up the ladder each time and not down.

                Us this role no matter how much you dislike it as the first rung in the ladder and propel yourself quickly to the next rung...

                  I'm really tired of looking for jobs around here, It's been more than 6 months and it's really tiring and frustrating for me, especially when I need the money.

                        Have you considered taking your expertise online? I mean there are online job sites like freelancer.com, odesk.com, etc. where you can offer your service for a fee. You can even consider fiverr.com.

                          I've tried them. There are too many people on there just as there are many people in the world employed that the chance of you getting a job is so little that it's not worth the effort anymore.

                            I understand how you feel. I was there before. It was very hard to get a head start but once you get your first positive feedback, you will easily get notice by employers. Just remember, try and try until you succeed.

                              How can I get a positive feedback? or a job to begin with, or perhaps noticed?
