Unemployment is soul destroying yet many graduates have to face its reality.

The employment market is fiercely competitive and the chances of walking into a job you love are less than slim.

It’s easy to spiral into despair, thinking you’ll never get a job or feel you’ll only ever be offered a position flipping burgers or loading grocery bags.2

But while you continue your search for a job you can see the positive sides of being an unemployed graduate to boost your morale and your prospects.

1. The Truth is That Many Jobs Need Voluntary Experience

There are many jobs where even with your qualifications you still need experience in order to be employed with a permanent position.

In some jobs, you simply have to pay your dues, and that is usually done with voluntary experience.

You are paid nothing, or very little, and are usually given a title such as β€œintern” or β€œtime bank” employee.

After you gain enough experience, you can put it on your resume and start applying for jobs with a better chance of you being employed.

2. You Can Actually Damage Your Credibility

Maybe it isn’t because you cannot get a job after graduation;

maybe you are waiting for the right job.

Think about it from an employer’s point of view: You get your qualifications, you do well, you are top of your class, you work for 5 months as a burger flipper and now you want a job with him/her.

Your future employer is going to wonder how good you actually are if your CV has really crummy jobs on it.

3. You Are Supposed to Try New Things and See What Fits

Who said you were supposed to jump right into a job as soon as you graduated?

The world is full of stuff you haven’t tried.2

Why not try a few things first and see what you like?

How can you be sure you are working the job of your dreams when you have not had comparative experience?
