Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
A bit of background first, i am 27, I held several jobs for a few years, may recent jobs being related to the area of market research, first a call center that promoted me to a monitor, and the next a face to face survey place that give you cash for taking surveys.
I am good with computers, know my way around MS office, and did a temp job as an IT intern for an engineering firm.
I graduated from college with a degree in marketing and advertising, and i am currently re-enrolled with a focus in financial accounting. I have 1 semester left before i have the bachelors, and 2 before i can get a masters which would qualify me for a CPA license. ( assuming i get all the other requirements)
Everywhere i have applied, i have gotten "you aren't qualified enough" or "too qualified" messages. I rarely ever hear anything back besides a nice little "thanks for trying" letters.
I am using my college employment office, the job fairs that come here, newspapers and the internet.
Is there some sort of fundamental flaw i am unaware of or is the job economy still in the crapper?
