I've been actively looking for work since mid May (Just finished college), with only 2 responses to say they weren't interested this far.
I'm feeling rather defeated about the situation atm, how do you keep yourself optimistic about it?
I know i have good qualities once I become comfortable with people, but initially I just come across shy, anxious and socially inept. I know I work hard and am committed but how are potential employers going to see this through the nerves? I also really undervalue myself, and I can't seem to break this habit.
I'm not applying for out of my league jobs, or high paying ones. I'm going for literally anything, yet I'm getting no responses. It's really knocking my confidence, I just want to get any kind of job so I can feel like I have more of a place in the world. I feel so lost being finished with college and having no job prospects.
It's like I'm waking up with no real reason to get up in the mornings. I'm trying to keep myself busy but I know I'm working myself into a rut over this.
Advice on how you managed to overcome shyness/anxiety around applying for jobs or just ways of making yourself stand out from the crowd would be really, really appreciated! Or anyone else in the same situation looking to rant as well...!
Thanks for listening to me babble
