I am BEYOND frustrated. Yes, I have a job and I know I shouldn't complain with the millions out of work but honestly, at this point I expected to be make more money being so long out of college. I have a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Mass Communications with an Emphasis on Video Production. I have ZERO experience in that, so their is no way I can get a job with that. (Nor could I get an internship to get experience, which is only for college students.) I have worked primarily customer service jobs post college, doing collections then straight up customer service to now working as a Auditor for Rejected Medicare Part D claims. The work is fine and I enjoy my job but the pay at this point is completely unacceptable. I'm nearly 30 and I just feel like I have failed beyond measure because I don't make nearly as much money as I would have hoped I would have by his point. I'm looking at job postings, asking for numerous years of experience, which I don't have. I just don't know what I qualify for that I could apply for that I could actually get a job that pays a lot better. I want to make $50,000 a year but I'm uncertain what I could legitimately qualify for so I don't waste my time. I'm frustrated and I just am lost as to what to do. It's easy to find a job when you are looking for anything but to find a better paying job in this competitive job marketplace is TOUGH. Especially with barebones experience and a worthless degree. Please help!!!!

$32K is not bad, especially not here in the Midwest. Lots of people think that just because they went to college, they will automatically get a good paying job. That is so not true. Unless one aspires to become a medical professional (doctor, nurse, etc), lawyer, or engineer; college degrees are pretty a waste of time and money in general. It's all about the skills and how well you can sell yourself.

Are you joking? 32k a year blows. 50k a year blows.

Got a degree? Go work for gov. Case workers start in mid 30sk.
