A university graduate in China took to social media to share about her struggles on the job market, failing about 30 job interviews and crying about it.
The girl had majored in copywriting and planning and upon her graduation, sent out more than 800 applications to companies and only about 30 of them responded to her.
She went for interviews with the 30 companies and none of them replied her, with some of them even offering her internships instead with no salary.
She added that the internships offer didn’t even come with the promise of a job offer after, as she cried and asked what is the point of her going to university.
She said that her best friend was earning about 7,500 yuan (or SGD$1,457) working in Beijing, which was a decent salary for a uni graduate in China
But she had to fork out 2,000 yuan (SGD$388) for rental, and always had to work OT, often times working until 3 to 4am and having to wake up again for work at 7am.
The girl lamented how her younger friends are having more success than her, and said that her family is pressuring her to be a teacher or join the government.
It got to a point where she refused to return home for Chinese new year because of the pressure.
