Follow us on the path to finding your first job out of college

If you’re feeling the struggle of post-grad life, our five-part video series “Graduated—and Unemployed” is full of laughs and job search advice to help you land an awesome job.

Congrats, class of 2018. You made it. All of those cheap boxes of wine, midday meltdowns, 20-cent noodles, and late night cram sessions are behind you. You’re on your way.  But….you’re not quite there yet. Because if you’re like 74.3% of this year’s graduates polled by Monster, you still don’t have a job.

Monster’s five-part video series, Graduated—and Unemployed, is here to help—and hopefully provide a few laughs for those all-too-real moments everyone encounters on the journey to a full-time job and a 401(k).
