So you have your degree. Now what?

From USA Today:

How do you land that job after college?

Katie Diekman, 22, is looking forward to a “gap” year after graduating with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in May.

But Diekman, who majored in women’s studies and history, still needs to find a job in the non-profit field to fill that gap.

“For a lot of people, it’s really overwhelming,” Diekman said. “It’s still very hard and frustrating looking for jobs.”

Diekman is working at an unpaid grant writing internship at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County in Michigan. She’s also working weekends at The Produce Station, a gourmet market in Ann Arbor. Eventually, she wants to go to grad school to become a professor in women’s studies.

But she wants to work in the non-profit sector right now before committing to grad school. And she’s hunting for jobs in that area now, too. If she doesn’t find better-paying work, she plans to move back home and live with her parents for a while.
