To be honest I don't know who to blame any more, it seems like everyone is to blame.
Times are hard and it sucks.
I went to Uni to do a course which I'd hoped would prepare me for a career which I have genuinely wanted to embark on since leaving school. Sadly I now find that for every job in my chosen field there are usually between 100-200 applicants for each post. Furthermore many of the posts advertised clearly state that 1-2 years of doing said job is a requirement.
This leaves me in the position of looking for other work while applying for jobs in the field I trained for. Sadly this is not as easy as it seems and I have been turned down for several positions due to being 'over qualified' (At least thats what the ones that bothered to acknowledge my applications said).
So it seems that not only can I not get a job in my chosen field but I also can't get a job doing anything else.
I have an interview this week which offers me some comfort. However I suspect that even this job is already taken, and the employer is merely interviewing to satisfy various requirements with regards to equal opportunities. So it looks like my process of submitting applications will continue in the vain hope that something will happen.
Sorry to ramble on, but these predictions of things continuing to get worse just fill me with dread. This is made even more frustrating by finding it hard to blame anyone other than myself, maybe aspirations are for fools.
