bad news chin up


well I got an email today saying I wasn't successful for the job I had the interview for last week. It upset me quite a lot as I really want to get a job that is more creative/design based so I really can use my degree. Working where I am at the moment is ok - and I know I should be grateful that I have a job when so many out there are struggling to find work - but I feel like I have wasted the last four years and have just gone back to the sort of thing I was doing when I left school at 16!

Being a graduate is not how I was hoping it would be. I know what I need to do to help me get a job but at the moment I can't afford to work for free in order to get an entry level positon :(

Sorry for the melodramatic 'poor me' post! Tomorrow I will hopefully be writing something a bit more interesting based on an article I read in this weeks Stylist magazine.

Is anyone else struggling to find the job of their dreams? Would love to hear some success stories too!


  1. sam, i know exactly how you feel! :( being a graduate is nothing like how i thought it would be- they should write a book on it (maybe that is our road to success :p)
    it's so unfair that in the fashion industry they expect you to work for free- it shouldn't be allowed! but keep your chin up, we just have to keep trying and know that something will come up! you're an awesome designer so don't let it get you down :) xx

  2. Skye, Thank you so much for that lovely message :) I was feeling quite down yesterday but have decided that the only way I will succeed is to keep trying and striving for what I want! I am definitely going to keep my chin up :)

    I hope everything is going well with you, I really love your little cross stitch pictures!


  3. I'm in the same situation, applying for jobs is horrible, being a graduate sucks, can't we go back to being students instead?

    Good luck with the job hunt though! :)

    Lisamello xx

  4. As the title suggests, all you can do is keep your chin up! It's a really rubbish time to be a graduate but if you persevere I'm sure something will come along eventually x
