I'm a fresh grad (class of 2020 wuhu), who hasn't landed a job. I'm getting really anxious. I've applied to over 100 jobs/traineeships but no good news yet. Any advice for job search in a recession?

I had a handful of interviews, but the companies never got back to me. I'm trying to improve my skillset by picking up Google Analytics and taking online courses/certifications as well. LinkedIn is stressing me out, seeing my peers landing and starting on their new jobs, while I'm still jobless. Any advice is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

    Hey there!

    Great job on up-skilling! Data Analytics, Digital Marketing.. all these will be highly relevant industries. Don't stop applying, don't give up! And I think it's normal to be comparing ourselves with our peers and wondering why aren't the companies getting back to us. Everyone's journey is different. You might find that the tenacity and upskilling will serve you well, both in the near and distant future. All the best!

      Hi Anon! Similar to you, I am also unfortunately a fresh grad of 2020 :( I have hit about maybe 200+ applications with no success in the past 4 months but there's no way I am giving up! I am currently taking on some part time jobs for spare income while i continue my job search! Good luck and all the best to you! May we both secure jobs soon !

        If 100 doesn't work, try 200 (serious). You can get a sensing after every 50 applications or so what...
