When I first graduated with my associates in business administration I was looking for employment but I decided to go back to school and took on another major. I finished my last class in December. Started looking for work in January and landed two jobs on February 21.When I first graduated in May it was very hard. I looked for work but, did not even get one interview. I noticed that they are looking for experience people with education. I Did have some background in administration but, the market was slow. I decided to get my diploma in medical assistant so that i will have the option in either field or combine them as in "Medical Office Administration". Now I think the jobs are coming back slowly but, last year was the most hardest times. The recession has caused many graduates to pursue other avenues. For example, I have my business degree and a Medical Assistant Diploma but, I landed a job in the Office Administration field and as Sales Associate at a major home and office improvement store. I could not find a position in the medical because they want highly qualified individuals with degrees. I believe throughout your job search you have to keep your options open. I learned that the hard way although, was very lucky to land two position even though they are two totally different.
