Hi there,

I feel like I’m at a crossroad regarding my career, or the lack of.

I’m 25, graduated in International Relations in 2012 and decided do a Masters in International Marketing abroad right after, which I completed in the end of 2013. I had the feeling that the first didn’t prepare me enough for the market and my dream was to live abroad and have that cultural experience.

Course finished and with no money or job, I had to come back home and focus there. I had my expectations high; however the lack of experience or a series of factors didn’t enable me to reach higher ends than only another internship and a temp position.

One thing I can see nowadays and that unfortunately weren’t tackled in my masters, is that to land a marketing job (at least here) you need to also be some kind of digital marketing guru and designer. Besides, it could have been less academic and more professional, as advertised.

The economy is terrible here at the moment and the pressure of time is everyday more evident (I am 8 months without any activity).

I have spent thousands of dollars and now I don’t know what to do. I don’t feel the motivation or have the money to spend several months in learning basic digital or design, especially considering I am not a teenager anymore and everything asks for past experience.

And to be honest, I don’t see myself as the tech savvy guy who cares deeply about google rankings.

Now I don’t know what to do. Time is passing, I’m already 25, educated but I can’t seem to find a job. I even thought about paying for those companies that secure you an internship, but it will cost thousands and do not guarantee any form of future position.

I also thought of starting from 0, crossing out all the past and starting a new graduation in an area that I could get better results like engineering; however I can’t see myself in many other areas.

You can see I am lost, with thoughts all over the place. But maybe you can give me some light, help me think clearer about my path. Any thought?
