How to deal with unemployment frustration

I am MBA Marketing post-graduate. I am not getting suitable calls for about a year. I am getting extremely frustrated. Do you know any growing field where there are opportunities and I can do a course and enter it.

Hi Nilesh,

Looking at the current job scenario, firstly getting employed is the biggest struggle followed by secondly, getting a proper opportunity, which one is looking out for.

In this situation, my earnest request would be to just search a job in the marketing domain and go along. Once you are employed, you can then hunt for a job and can be demanding, since you are already employed.

Getting frustrated will not help you, neither gaining degrees or certificates. Once you are employed, depending on the job demands then acquiring a certificate would be more useful rather than pursuing any course now.

Best now would be to hunt for a job, get employed, by approaching different jobsites or with references. At the same time, work on your skill like communication, and convincing skills, required to be successful in the marketing job.

Hope this helps....

Dear Aspirant,

I sympathise with your situation.

Have you tried to find out what are the reasons why you are not getting suitable jobs? Hope you are not being choosy while applying to companies.

I would suggest you to tap your friends, family for referring you to companies.

Do you have the employable skills like good communication skills, interview skills, domain knowledge?
I would suggest you to approach private job consultants also instead of relying on just paper advertisements or job portals.

Is your resume reflecting the right information in a right and proper way? Hope your degree is valid as per UGC norms.

Don't lose heart, but try to enter into marketing field only since other field your qualification will not be accepted.

Best wishes
