I am a recent graduate and am looking for full-time employment in the DC area. Not in any particular field yet, since pretty much every job opportunity requires x years of experience that I do not have. My most recent work experience was at a daycare facility. Most job sites see that on my resume and gear all jobs related to that. However that’s not what I want to continue doing. I only worked in the daycare industry for so long so that I could afford childcare for my children while also finishing my undergraduate studies. I’m continuously applying for jobs yet never hear back or get notifications that I wasn’t selected. Any tips or Advice?
