Did you get a job in your field of study immediately? Did you have to take up part time work before finding a major related job. Did you take a job unrelated to your studies?
I spent a year working in temporary, semi-related jobs, then went back to grad school, then did a stint in the military, then more grad school. Now I work in my chosen field - experimental physics.
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere

I didn't find any jobs immediately, it took half a year of applying to everything to get a successful bite. I did look for part-time work in the meanwhile, because I was living with my dad, who was really struggling trying to pay for myself, my little sister, himself, his new fiance, his fiance's son, my student loans, my car insurance, my gasoline, etc. He was practically yelling at me to just get in the car and drive around to local stores all day long, filling out applications at every local shop and turning them in. So I did, but nothing was happening.
I was looking for both Chemistry-related jobs and any job that would give me money; my interviews for chemistry positions took me driving to 11 different companies in 5 different states. About 6 months after I'd graduated, I was hired at a pizza delivery chain, and then a few weeks after that, received a call that I was hired at a lab I interviewed for 500 miles from my home. So I moved out there and started that job. Still working here now.
I just started my first year of college. I have no idea what I want to major in. Reading some of these posts makes me wonder if it even matters! Right now I'm just kind of going to school, then coming home. I've never had a job before--not during high school or anything. I'm going to try to get one over the summer, when I have time... maybe at a bookstore or something. But as for college... I have no idea what I'm doing there.
