I’m graduating this semester and I’ve applying and I can’t even get an interview. I thought the unemployment rate was rhe lowest it has ever been.

I have found that it works to meet people instead of sending applications. Job fairs, etc.

I didn’t go there, but I understand GMU has a good network with local companies. Try going through the school.

Companies receive hundreds of applications. Differentiate yourself somehow. Get out there and network.

This is a true story:

The summer after I graduated from college I worked at a Chili’s for some pocket money. One day, a bunch of people from the tech firm across the street came in for lunch, and I started talking to them about how they got hired. They each ordered appetizers and a main course, but only a few of them had dessert.

I work at a technology company that has no problem hiring programmers right out of school, and has listed ads on Craigslist in the DC area. The opportunities are out there, especially with Amazon getting ready to poach local devs. Here's some key questions:

What types of positions have you applied for? Programming? Networking? Have you had to take any pre-interview programming tests?

My question is did the tech people at Chili’s order Tex-Mex dishes, or did they order more traditional (American) ones? When I go to lunch during work hours I tend to stay away from dishes that would make me fart, as there are two women in the office.

The first tech company I worked for was in Arlington. Outside the building were a lot of food trucks at lunch, and some of the fat slobs would sweat out the ethnic food they had eaten and it smelled terrible. We also had one woman there, but her hygene standards were low.

GMU's placement office is excellent. If you haven't been there and put in the effort with soliciting feedback on resume, interviewing, attending career fairs, etc., you don't deserve a job beyond that of Walmart Greeter.

I graduated from Virginia Tech in computer science, but didn’t have a job set up afterwards. I went on Monster.com and posted my resume. While I was waiting for a response, I went to Yelp and typed ‘tex-mex’, and Los Toltecos popped up. I went there and had the fajitas (beef) and a large Miller Lite. Long story short, I have been with the same company for six years.

Dude, I majored in sociology and got a job with a tech company. I don’t know dick about computers. Leidos will pay for me to take some certs, get my pmp and if I play my cards right, my mba. You have to network as others have said. Waving your diploma alone isn’t going to get you hired.

Identify as a transgender, handicapped black woman. I'm not joking either.

If they turn you down, which they won't, sue them for discrimination.

Start out working as a contractor that permits the customer the right to hire. You need some experience and contracting is the easiest way to get it. My wife work for Kelly Services on a help desk while attending Mason. She now works as a cyber solutions architect for an international bank and she still hasn't even graduated yet.

Data Centers are being built in Loundon County at an astonishing rate.

Go to INDEED.COM and search for Data Center Technician in Ashburn, VA.

Apply to as many jobs as you can. Might take 6 months but keep trying. Put you resume in built form NOT a paragraph.

Good Luck!!

Here's the thing. GMU as a commuter school admits students along a wider range of aptitudes than say UVA, William and Mary, etc... You can get a splendid education there but completing a degree there on its own doesn't prove you're smart, where-as it would at say UVA.

If you completed hard courses, list them. If you had a GPA higher than 3.5, list it. If your GPA was under 3.0, then I wouldn't lean on your college Ed much at all

And above all, be prepared to demonstrate how you can help your employer solve their problems.

Walmart will hire you. You'd fit in well in the electronics department

Thank Bush for the 1990 Immigration Act and the millions of H1Bs taking your entry level jobs.

The H1-B program is capped at 65k people a year. No, there aren't millions for current H1-Bs competing for your jobs.

Colleges are hiring dnc democrat hackers.

They need google run-aways who can hack "amazon echo" eves dropping boss ear in a way that tells them how much money the rich white kids parents have in savings and stocks.

they already have campus police hack to listen in on students, so that job is out the window already
