Hey Ryan, I can feel where you are coming from. I graduated from college over four months ago and I have still not found a job. Sometimes it gets me down, but when that happens I regroup and try and think positive again.

In my industry, if you offer to work for free for say, a month (if you can afford it), as an intern or whatever, this can get you "in the door". Then show people how hard you work and how cool you are. I own a business and have hired a few people this way. They've turned into my most valued employees.

The people running the intern program say most of their full time employees started out as interns, so maybe there is hope for an awesome job smile.gif If they get back to me. Most are also in bands, so it would be a good way to meet new musicians!

Thats awesome... You should call them, or do something that shows them you really want it. It may help getting a call back.
I don't know if I can intern anywhere here. Never actually heard of anybody ever doing it either.

I actually have semi-short hair. Bangs are only like 3 inchs in length for now.

Funny story on that...
I heard about it. I checked it out, and there isn't any specific listings for Hutchinson cause were a small city, but I did find a job at the papa murphy's pizza I could apply for. Well I told my mom, and she started yellin at me saying "hell no". Saying stuff like Ryan your not gonna be a porn star. lol She thought I was talkin about that other pornographic site lol

The Atlanta area Craigslist job listings took a huge drop when they went from free to $25 / posting. There used to be 100+ postings per day and now there's just a handful.

Free to $25 seems like quite a jump! That's too bad.

I think the $25 is just to filter out the scammers. The job postings seem more legit now.
