/ Asked by Robert
I am 41 years old with a master's degree, but I am still trying to get my first real job after college. After working at the same place for 2 years, I have been in a permanent job search since 2004. I am only ever able to get temp, part-time, and volunteer positions. Even after getting a master's in 2014, I am still dealing with the same hurdles in my job search. What can I do to break out of this cycle?

You acknowledge you’re stuck in a cycle, now where does that cycle keep resetting? It may be time for some internal conversation about your best skills, the types of jobs you’re seeking, and even what can you learn from previous experience and feedback. There’s no single answer without determining more about your specific situation, so take stock of what you already know, excel at, and have passions for, and determine if you’re barking up the right tree. You might find you’ve been looking at the wrong roles to truly excel.
Good luck, we know it is challenging to find the right place for your career!
