My tip to you is to use leverage and negotiating method. You as a degree holder is able to take any diploma holder job with ease. Speak to your interviewer that you don’t mind getting a lower pay for degree holders and would willingly want to start learning from the basic.

Pick up marketable and transferrable skills - e.g. copywriting, sales and marketing, search engine optimization etc.

Start offering your service to businesses for FREE - no strings attached.

Use the testimonials to get more paid client work, either as a freelancer or as an agency. "Getting a job" is not the only route to income!​​​

When there's no job offers, offer your service. At this point of stage, like what Jack Ma said, 20s is where you follow a mentor and learn. Google 'Gray Vee' and learn from him.

Put yourself out there, learn. Bottomline, every business, every individual appreciates it when they are given something that is of value to them. What can you value can you give to business?

It just came to mind, go to Instagram and search for "School of Impact". Loads of tips there. ​​​

Create one. I’m not a huge proponent of looking for opportunities no matter the economy. I very much rather face it with the standpoint of creating one. Look at your skill set and ask what value can you best bring to people. The path will be created with some thinking.

I would accept any jobs that comes along, keep improving my skill sets and look for job along the way.

Learning is A life long skill and if you do your job well there will always be people who appreciate your work
