graduate to be unemployed 4 years after graduating college with honors? Career counselors indicate that it takes upon average six months' time between graduation and landing a job. What psychosocial factors that make it extremely difficult for a college graduate to land a job? Yes, the economy is still uncertain; however, there ARE college graduates obtaining jobs, embarking upon their careers.
There are things that must be done in order to get hired at any job. Books like, "What color is your parachute?" and books on How to Get the Job you Want need to be studied and the actions needed must be applied.
Hunting for a job is just as much of a job as the actual job is! The job seeker needs to put in 40 hours a week just find a job.
Learn what the requirements are, how to dress for success, how to fill out forms, how to ace interviews, how to interview the company you want to work for too (it's not just a one way interview).
Seriously, it's hard work to find work these days!
Motivation is hard to come by. But I would suggest that this person figure out the job of his/her dreams and then TAKE ACTION to get that job! Persistence may be key.
Great answer, Austinstar. Sadly, so many young people fail to realize that looking for and landing a job is a FULL time job. So many college graduates give up shortly if they don't immediately land a job.
