How do I get a job without experience? How do I get experience without a job? Trying to find some work in this economy would make a lesser man decide to steal and rob. I thought that my degree would open lots of doors. I missed out on a lot of sleep to pass each class, but once I graduated, I became a member of the overeducated underclass. I just came home from yet another interview. The HR guy said he couldn't hire me. My resume needs one or two more internships, but I'm not rich - I can't afford to work for free. I worked two crappy jobs so I could pay for school, and student loans are creeping up on me so fast. How much longer am I doomed to stay a member of the overeducated underclass? I was told by so many people that going to college would be a stable path to a steady career and financial prosperity. I really don't know why I believed them, 'cause so far it hasn't been true. All my friends are settling for jobs any teenage high schooler could do. I know a man who's gunning for a Ph.D; I saw him working at a nearby video store. He told me, "Every Friday I stare at my check, and wonder what the hell I went to college for, 'cause my boss is paying me as if I'm still 18. I'm too old for allowances: I need real cash!" I know I'm not alone when I say I'm a member of the overeducated underclass.
