Thank you everyone for the prayers! My girlfriend got hired by a non-profit directed towards helping the impoverished community and those without enough money to pay rent to find suitable longterm housing! She is enjoying the job so far!

I have 3 weeks left until I graduate with my bachelors in Political Science with a 3.51. I’ve applied to over 100 different jobs across numerous different fields and have gotten no interviews and heard back only a few times on employers wanting more info. Its getting very discouraging as I have nothing lined up when I graduate and I bring exactly what most of these jobs ask for which is very confusing and frustrating. I’m remaining hopeful, its just hard. Thank you all for the prayers!

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

An update:

A company reached out to me after finding my resume and asked for me to interview. I interviewed with the CEO, it went great and got called in for second interview with an assistant manager. That interview was today (just ended 5 minutes ago) for over an hour via zoom. They loved me and plan to offer me a 3rd interview.

The job sounded really cool at first and very exciting. After the 1 hour I know all about the position now and it’s terrible and not at all what they said. It’s 100% commission when I was told it’s salary, there are no benefits when I was told there are benefits, the hours are 1pm-7pm M-F and 11:30pm-4pm on Saturday when I was told it’s 9-5 M-F. I was told it’s an office desk job but it’s door to door sales for a national company.

It also seems like one gigantic pyramid scheme where you start as entry level and rise up to managing your own office with 20+ employees in less than 3 years. Then you manage those employees so they can move up and open up their own offices.

This job sounded good but it’s terrible. I feel so lost as nobody ever responds to my applications because of COVID-19, they reached out to me and love me so far, and I graduate college in one week and have no job. I’m so lost and now saddened because this seemed so cool but they literally gave me a false impression about everything in the first interview and job description.

I now feel more stuck and lost than ever

I applied to numerous jobs at a corporate bank and I got asked for an interview for one of them and they haven’t gotten back on the few that I really want. The interview is tomorrow but the job only needs a HS degree so it’s annoying I can’t get something with my bachelors I literally am graduating with tomorrow.

It also doesn’t pay much and it’s 2.5 hours away from where I am would have to move but the job I don’t think would pay enough to cover apartment, student and car loans. So I’m stuck, I hope the better jobs for the same bank give me interviews. My brother has worked there for multiple years so he knows the exact monetary offer for this position, thus why I know it’s not enough unless they offer more than the salary minimum for this position

3 hail marys for you.

You are in my prayers. I know this isn’t much, but thankfully you are moving in a positive direction. Many people don’t even make the interview. … Try and stay positive and remember you are moving in a good direction. Praying you receive the opportunities to provide you with your needs and excel.

I had the interview and they liked me but point blank said they wouldn’t hire me because the job won’t pay enough to relocate and pay for an apartment. Its also not in a very safe city. At least they were honest about that, I have other applications in for the same corporate bank but at their corporate location where my brother works and others near there, hoping those come through.

On a brighter side, I have officially graduated college as of today with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with minors in Classics and Sociology!
