Educated and Jobless

Posted on Sat, Feb 21, 2009 at 7:18 PM

I moved here (Halifax) after graduating university (B.Sc.) and expected to easily find work. It's been a month now and I've papered the entire city with my resumes and cover-letters, and I haven't heard a thing - whats the deal with this place? Even when I apply for low-wage work, I get turned down because of being 'overqualified' - the assumption being that I won't take the job seriously or will leave at the first opportunity of something better. It seems no matter how ambitious I am, the answer is always no. Is it just me or is it incredibly hard to get a job here?
