    Have you maybe thought about just going for a GED? They aren't super hard to obtain, and no one really cares in America anymore whether you got a diploma or a GED later on. I know a ton of high school drop outs that are in management positions doing a job they genuinely like and care about with great benefits. The Railroad, UPS, and Costco are some examples of companies actual people I know without a diploma are excelling at just fine.



    The problem with this trend is that it is depreciating the value of the degrees themselves in the workplace. It's better socially speaking to have more educated people no matter what, but speaking in terms of jobs degrees influence a lot more than I feel they should, especially for entry level jobs. Employers make their simple jobs sound way bigger than they really are. Now-a-days you almost need to be a career student to get the pick of the litter.

    Ooohh! Okay. Yeah, you're good! Honestly, college is for those that are going to get something out of it. It does you no good to kid yourself thinking you'll just put up with it for x years or months and then you'll be fine. Better to just find a company you can find agreeable work with decent benefits and start at the bottom and work your way up the traditional ladder.

    Honestly, this is everyone. It isn't really a personal thing. Everyone's having trouble finding and securing work. It's a bigger picture.. so I wouldn't take that part to heart. Just keep trying, and working with the Workforce Solutions center near you. They'll help send places to apply to your way. I'd also send online applications to every major retailer in your area. If you've already done that, just keep re-applying and crossing your fingers.

    that was one of my theories, other included i'm too smart for them, they must know that i might try to destroy them from the inside because i'm not a big fan of corporations, and now i'm never gonna get a job, but who cares because they probably already know. and if they don't i just fucked myself.

    I did badly in college, and improved in university. If you regret it hard enough, you can and will make a change.
