I am not willing to relocate to NYC or DC. Those cities are crammed, stressful, cold, expensive, and just downright miserable places to live. I love to visit them, and have many times, but to live there is just not my thing.

I like Atlanta. I stayed there for a summer back in 2010 and I would be willing to move back for a job opportunity. I am generally open to moving for employment, but I won't take a job in the Northeast or Midwest. Anywhere else would be just fine.

And no, I didn't expect some nice consulting job. I wanted an entry level job in the insurance industry, as I have stated many times in the thread.

I am willing to relocate, but not to Wisconsin. I am from Florida and I just wouldn't be able to take Wisconsin's winters. The last time I went to that part of the country was to visit Chicago a few years ago. It was June and it was too cold for me. lol.
Yep. Sorry. You're not worth trying to help. You're completing saying no to entire regions of the country- as a single young man- because the weather is cold?

We're in a depression and your skill set is virtually non-existent. Realistically, with your major you offer absolutely nothing to a potential employer beyond a capacity to learn something useful; and that's a maybe.

I empathize with your situation, I really do. I hate sales and I hate the fact that guidance counselors continue to push naive 18 year olds into dumb majors because "you can do anything you want if you put your mind to it! (cue bad music and a depressed lower middle class adviser speaking profundities)." But you're being laugh out loud ridiculous if you're not willing to make a big move to the economic hotspots bc u gets coldsy woldsly in New York.

The only one chopping an attitude is you.

Just so you know, I took several of the posters advice and applied for sales jobs. I currently have 4 interviews this week. Two of them are sales related and the other two are with insurance.

I thank those posters who reminded me that sales is not a terrible place to start in a company. I shouldn't be so averse to doing sales. Nearly all of my work experience is sales related. It's something that I'm good at, if nothing else.

If anyone has contributed nothing constructive to this conversation it is you, golfgal. Dont respond to my post.

I kinda thought like you when I was a few years younger so I definitely can relate..

Since you're just starting out in life and don't have much experience to offer and don't have much money saved up, you're on the right track if you think this way.

It doesn't matter if your first job(s) are not so glamorous or whatever.. at least if it puts food on the table and gives you experience that makes you employable, you're on the road to a better future.
