189 ~ Ask Megan! What to when you can’t get a job after incredible training.

Play

On each episode Megan answers YOUR questions each and every Tuesday.
I am a graduating senior who attended one of the top year round training program for the past four years. I’ve spent the past three months auditioning for my first professional job and have come up with nothing other than the opportunity to be a trainee in some companies.  I feel as that I’ve already been a trainee for 4 years and my parents are refusing to continue to pay so much to have me be a trainee again with no promise of getting a job.  I have heard there are a lot of layoffs and few jobs right now.  Is this worse than normal and do you have any advice on my situation?
