“I was a soon-to-be college graduate in the USA on an international student visa. I was looking to relocate to a different state with minimum industry experience. Oh and this story takes place in the middle of the financial meltdown of 2008. Additionally, I had to find a job within three months which is when my student visa expires. Was I crazy? Just a tad but I knew what I wanted and one way or another I will get it.”

As a young soon to be college graduate, I used every resource available to students and then some. I attended the requisite career fairs hosted by the various departments of the school. I even attended other colleges career fairs. I had my resume critiqued by my school’s career center and it erased all individuality that I worked so hard to create within my resume. Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com were favorites on my browser as everyday I submitted by revised resume in the hope of getting a job, ANY job. I attended networking events and handing out my business cards with dreams that I would get the phone call that would assure my of a job.
