  3. Having an extremely hard time finding "stepping stone" jobs. Other options or thoughts?

[ad_1]

Finished a bachelor in interior design with specialty furniture design in september but having an extremely hard time finding “stepping stone” jobs. But obviously need money also. Last month I even filled boxes with medicins to earn some money…

But these things are not furthering my career at all.

Feels like 95% of jobs are either “filling boxes” or “manager of type 7 spacecraft nozzle manufacturing engineering team with 17 years experience”.

Where is the inbetween stuff I mean everyone had to start somewhere…

​

Since I can’t seem to make this work my second idea was to get a any non field related parttime or 4/5th job and use the extra day to further my own projects, build portfolio etc…

Maybe eventually start something on my own.

​

But it seems all employers are not interested in anything but fulltime. Even if it’s just filling boxes or cleaning floors.

​

There are so many companies that make the ugliest products in history. But they believe because they can sell it it’s also a good product. Company pride….

I could design them things that are relevant in these times and could elevate their company.

But no one is taking a chance.

​

How do I convince them?

I’m at a loss here I don’t even know how to formulate.

​

Not a sob story, I have to learn how to adapt to the current job market.

I mean not complaining about my school we learned usefull things but they forgot the liferaft or at least guidelines after kicking us out of the boat after graduating.
