College senior problems

It just hit me that in a few months my undergraduate career will be over. I have applied to a couple graduate programs so my education is not necessarily done. But, if I don't get into a grad program I have to get a job. I have been looking at job ads and they all seem to want experience in the field..... I am just freaking out, plus I have 50k in debt that I need to pay off! The future is scary

God bless with all your plans. God will surely provide in everything that you need. Just open your mind and clear your head from everything that will blurr your sight to see clearly of the opportunity that will come your way.

Thanks! I am trying to stay positive. I think it will just be harder to get a job than I thought. My degree is in a science related field and I wanted a job as a lab tech, but the requirements are a lot higher than expected

@ambrosiaswchatz if you consider life is a game with levels .... well then prior you experienced were level 1, level 2..... now maybe its level 10 a bit harder ........ prior also a reality now is also a reality ... it just that it's going to get harder.....

@SAM774 maybe... but when you play videogames each level should prepare you for the next. It's not like you go from level 1 difficulty to level 10 unless you decide to go to a place where stronger level monsters spawn... like quarry junction

Just start with internships..Its the best way to gain experience and build contacts. Internships may drain you and make you feel why you should work for free like someones servant but that's the best way to get polish your skills. Happy Future.

I am not really sure if I can get internships in the field... for the last 2 years I have been working in a lab on campus so I have 2 years experience, I just haven't been employed...

Don't stress. You will make it no matter what. If school doesn't work out, I believe one of those jobs will be blessed to have you. Stay positive and believe it with all your being. If you believe it....you can achieve it.

@ambrosiaswchatz Well done! I hope you'll get into a graduate program - a Master Degree, especially in your hard major, would surely come handy in your future...
