Today, it's been months since I graduated university. I still haven't managed to land a single interview. Meanwhile my brother recently woke up from a week long bender, realized he had no money for weed, went out, and 4 days later landed a well paid sales job 15 minutes from home. FML

This, especially if you aren't getting calls. A second and even third set of eyes can't hurt - just make sure it is someone who has no qualms about being honest. I had my mother in law do mine as she not only is honest but is a college professor who has helped many students get jobs.

What is your degree and what are you applying for? If you are applying for high level jobs without experience, it makes sense that you're not getting interviews. Sales jobs usually don't have requirements other than a high school diploma. While you're waiting to get interviews, try to get an entry level job to support yourself and so you can say that you've been doing something other than sitting around.

Thank you, just because you graduated uni doesnt mean you automaticaly get a certain job. The is too much information left out in the fml.

Sales jobs are the oddballs of the working world. If you've got the gift of gab, you can land one easy. Hang in there OP, and consider doing some volunteer work while you're waiting for your turn. It looks better to say you've been filling your time productively, and it is a real confidence booster!

Sounds like a situation that happened with my mom and husband. My mom had been looking for a job with a vet and couldn't find one for weeks, meanwhile, my husband moved down to my city and found a job within a day because he applied to 30 jobs on Craigslist.

Keep your head up, OP. You'll find something soon! Ask your brother what he did, maybe he can help you out.
