Re: I got my first MA job (A year + after graduation)

Jenny-We who are all still trying to find a job are glad you finally found one,it gives us hope, so can you share a few other things with us? Such as-

1. About how many jobs did you apply for?
2. Were any out of the direct field you were trained for?(such as applying as a medical office File Clerk,etc)
3. How many interviews did you get? How many employers did you hear from?(to tell you that it was filled and such)
4. Do you think it makes a big difference to put in 100+ applications as opposed to say 20-30?
5. Was the one you finally landed the type of job you wanted, and had you applied recently or some time ago?

I hope you see this and can answer these questions, or somebody else does. We are all very curious.
