Apply only if you have experience

Coming down to the end of the term, a hopeful graduate starting a new chapter in life, I’ve begun the long-awaited job search. I’ve been warned by just about everyone that the job search isn’t easy and it would be awhile before I found anything to apply for. Even so, I go to Google and look up job openings in my area of study just to see what’s out there. Well, to my surprise, finding job openings hasn’t been the problem. Instead it’s been the years of experience required that has prevented me from applying to several job postings. I’m coming out straight from college with little to no experience, so how am I supposed to get a job?

I’m looking at broadcasting jobs and I’ve come to learn that you need to apply in rural places, like Coos Bay or some obscure town in Idaho. Although moving to an even smaller city doesn’t sound ideal, that’s where the opportunities are at. Once you get some experience there, you can apply to other jobs in big cities like Portland or Seattle that require background knowledge. So far, I haven’t made up my mind on what to do but am strongly considering moving to a small town in the Northwest if that’s where I can get a job.
