Hey Anon, if you have enough savings to tide you through the next 2-4 months, I'd wait for the right job with an acceptable pay to come by instead of settling for less. Especially if you have some work experiences on your resume, you should roughly know how much you are worth in the job market and don't settle for less. Try to block out any pressure from your friends and families on pestering you to get a job soon, the wait may eventually be worth it! ​​​

Every one has a different time on getting a new job as all the situations are different.

don't think that this is a factor worth comparing to know how "good" you are compared to others in getting a job based on the "waiting time"

if you got money can wait for the right job

if you need money then get the job that comes.

is like going to toilet.

You can choose to go to a dirty one nearby if you are urgent.

If you are not urgent you can go to a further one that is much cleaner.​​​

I would say just take up a job first. You’ll be surprised at the different things that you can learn...
