Default Graduated 1 year from Environmental Science and Geography... Jobless (Need help)

Blah, I was glad to find such job board. I will try to provide as much info as possible.

I was graduated last year from University of Toronto with a honor degree in Honor Bach of Environmental Science and Geography, general put I am having trouble finding a job

I have worked in CIBC (not for long as I hated the attitude of ppl there as well as the customer), part time with Club Monaco, Census (Stat Canada), some Manufracture plant which made me left cause they injuried me and now I am working with EB games part time...

My resume isn't bad, at least I went to the national job fair and the guy couldn't even critize anything bad on it (he just dislike the format and color I use... which I think that really depend on your taste)


I mean.... I really wanted to find a full time and at the same time, I felt with my degree that I shouldn't stay at this Office admin level (which is ranged at $ 12 - 14 dolalr, I felt I deserve a bit more OR am I really asking too much?)... Then again, I have no idea how I can begin my career with something thats related to my study (I seeked Eco Canada - which is an enviromnetal job association for help, but I didn't even score an interview).

I really really need some pointer as in what I can do to help finding such job.

I was thinking about college, but I don't know what I should take or rather take something thats really off track.

Thanks for the help guys.

(PS: I tried Workopolis, Monster and my own University job board, but all I got was interview as Clerk or Office admin, I have not seen anything with related to my field)

Hi,
Have you tried contacting employment agencies with available jobs in your field?
I found a couple of recruiting agencies that are in the Environmental and Biotechnological market.

Search JobAgencies.ca and probably you will find more:

Career Advancement Employment Services - http://www.careeradvancement.on.ca/

Harcourt & Associates -
http://www.harcourt.ca/home/

http://environmental.aerotek.com/Rec...g/Default.aspx

http://www.aerotekcanada.com/

I think a degree from UFT is very credible and you should emphasize that when speaking with recruiters. Call them and send them emails, but you have to talk to them, establish a relationship with them!

Hi Huckebein,

I am unemployed too but I have started to follow up and to call the recruiters and I had 2 calls already. One was a quick interview which I wasn't prepared for but at least somebody called me!

Hey guys, thanks for the reply, truely appreciate it

I will try those link that Tsveta provided.

But ya, I have tried contacting agency for help, but it just seems majority of them deal with office, manufracture and other job thats unrelated to the field....

I defintely try calling up them again to see if they can help me in anyway.

But as for the other thing, I don't think College study is viable now?

Huckebein, a degree from Toronto University is something so many people dream of having... You don't need to study more just need the right job…
