Many of you noticed that I haven’t blogged for awhile. That’s because I’ve been feeling lost and depressed. Job hunting is no joke. I keep reminding myself that tomorrow is going to be a better day. I’m not so sure about that anymore. I’m tired of people asking me “hey, are you working right now?”  All I ask is to please give me a break. You’re not helping when you ask me that question. I hide my sadness by changing the conversation. You need to understand that I recently graduated. It hasn’t been easy for me with the job hunting, especially when I do everything on my own without help.

My sincere apologies for sounding depressed. But I am depressed. I feel lonely and lost. But I have hope. Hope is what gives me a little of happiness. I have hope that 2014 will be better for me.

  1. Aww, sorry to hear that! Don’t worry, you’re not alone – MANY people (myself included) have recently graduated, and WILL have challenges in finding a job. The key to it all is persistence. Remember why you decided to go to school, and hold on to that motivation. Determination and patience will pay off. Finding a job is a matter of luck as well, you have to be in the right place and at the right time. Persevere!! You and I both will find something eventually! 🙂

    1. Thank you for your kind words Casie. You reminded something I had forgotten for awhile. Being persistence, patience, and the reason I decided to go to college. We’ll find a great career next year 🙂 Thanks for making feel better!

    1. You understand me very well. I’m facing both and people tell me things will get better when they know nothing about being hard of hearing (the way we feel, we hear, and get treated). Hopefully next year will be the year for me.

  3. Hi Alicia,

    I admire you for your courage to share and be honest about your job hunting experience. I’m sorry to hear you’re having a tough time. It’s not just recent grads, but career changers as well.

    Hope is something that connects us all. Even the recession couldn’t stop people from taking risks, and making big leaps in the pursuit of something better. Sometimes, the results just take longer than we hope.

    Please take care and don’t hesitate to reach out through your blog/social media. Thanks for sharing your journey.

    Hopeful,
    Leila

Hope is what keeps everyone guessing what the future will be like. I’m really glad I wrote this post.
