I graduated with an Econ degree last June. All I’ve ever done is wait tables. I had a 3.2 GPA. I didn’t have an internship. I still don’t have a job. Dunno what to do... I can’t seem to succeed in interviews because everyone is more qualified than me, even if I do get the interview. All my friends have big boy jobs but me. Help. I don’t want to be a loser but I am quickly becoming one.

Did you got an interview or not??

The average job hunt - in GOOD economic times - is 6-12 months. Don't begin to panic until a year has passed.

The problem is ALWAYS at the level you stall. If you were not getting any interviews, there would be something wrong with your CV. If you're getting interviews, they've decided you ARE qualified for the job and just want to see what you're like personally. And that seems to be where you're failing. It is NOT that you're not qualified, but that you don't come across well in person.

Have you done practice interviews? Your college has a help-you-get-a-job office, and most will also work with recent grads. Go back and ask for help in your interviewing skills
