Got 4-year degree, but no employer wants me.

What are my options, how do I get a job in my field? I'm being vague because I'm looking for general info for job-getting.

How can you expect to get any advice without giving any information?

Apply for jobs if you want a job. There you go.

I'm not OP, but I have a 4 year degree in molecular biology. The field I want to apply it in is brewing quality control, so I'm getting a certificate in brewing processes from a top brew school to buff up my resume and get more familiar with the industry. That's in October, and I'm hoping to network with the instructors as well as with their reference/job ad networking they've got with it.

tl;dr Any tips for cold calling or otherwise injecting yourself into the job market?

>extracurricular certifications

Fuck life. Just, fuck it. It's either effort or working as a delivery driver.
So tired of it. Just wanna slam a big shot and go night night, but then my parents would be sad.

Hey you sound proactive, that's a good start. I had a career in recruitment and the most important things we looked for was a good job history or education history, try not to leave any gaps in your resume. Phoning companies and asking about work is an excellent way to get yourself noticed, even just ringing up and explaining where you want to be and asking if you can come and do a week or so of unpaid work to see what its like. I know nobody wants to do unpaid work but it definitely can lead to networking and employment opportunities.

Kind of unrelated but the most important quality many employers agree on is consistency, even if you're shit it you're consistently shit and always work to that standard employers will still pick you over someone who is brilliant sometimes and shit other times. This is partly why they all like to see no gaps on the resume, it shows you're consistently eager to do stuff.
