Fellow students, you’re probably excited about graduating and with your certificate, you think you can get into anywhere for a job. That may be true but unfortunately, many students who have graduated are still struggling for a job to support themselves, and it’s even sadder when this happens ALL around the world.

Just recently, a grad student in China vented her frustration on Douyin, a Chinese platform similar to TikTok, and shared her difficulties in finding a proper job. The girl majored in copywriting and planning, and since her graduation, she has been spending time attending interviews with over 30 companies, but to no avail.

She also revealed that some of those 30 companies provide internships WITHOUT allowance, and that’s not even the worst.

“They can’t even become full-time employees after the end of their internships.”

The girl said that over 800 companies responded to her job application, but only about 30 of them extended the opportunity for an interview. Following the failures after over 30 interviews, the girl cried and asked,

“What’s the point of me going to university?”

Young & Successful

Venting her emotions further, the girl said that her BFF managed to secure a job in Beijing with a monthly salary of RMB 7,500 (approximately RM4,800), which to her, is good pay for a grad student. But the pay does not come without any sacrifice.

About RMB 2,000 (approximately RM1,300) have to be forked out every month for her rental, and for her BFF, it’s always about working overtime.

“She goes home from work at 1 am. Sometimes 3 or 4 am, and she has to get up at 7 am.”

Not only that but a phone call from her workplace during her day off means work is waiting.

She then highlighted the successful people around her, which to her surprise, are younger than her. This includes her very own employer who became a working class at a young age, where he learned to understand human affairs, as well as maintaining a lot of social connections.

Feeling intimidated and demotivated, the girl asked herself again,

“What about me? With my family pressuring me to be a teacher or join the government, it’s not making things easier for me.”

She also admitted that due to the pressure from her family, she avoided going back to her hometown during CNY. You can listen to her full clip here.

Fellow Malaysians, was it tough for you back then prior to landing your current job? As for the students, are you ready to face the challenges out there?
