San Antonio is a ever growing market with new jobs that come up every day. It is all a question of the degree that you have earned and the field you are wanting to go into. If you do not know, would suggest taking a placement test that most colleges offer for free to their students. Some companies out there would approve you taken those tests as it shows you would be a right fit for the field.

Lots and lots of jobs in SA! If you are having difficulties I would think about working any and all of your contacts. Depends on what you are looking for and qualified for. Easy to get commission only jobs. It takes a lot of hard work and takes a long time to ramp up to make real money.

If you are looking for clerical or something to get started and get your feet in the door you just have to be positive, polished, likeable and aggressive about your desire to work hard. Stay the course and keep pushing. It will come!

One word... Competition. Under Obama, we are looking at the highest unemployment rates we have seen since World War II. Entry level jobs abound... but those who have taken the time to actually get their degree find themselves fighting for the same position with folks that have not only the same degree, but years of experience. Small to mid size businesses are dropping like flies and sending these folks into the same job market.

I am seeing quite a few people starting out at an entry level job, going on to grad school and taking the longer road to the better jobs... Some of the smarter ones become self employed.... Its though out there at the moment..

But it is getting better... That's the good news.

Being a college grad is commendable. Congrats! The availability and ease of procuring a job is directly related to your major. A BS in electrical engineering will have a much easier time finding employment than a BA in history for instance. It boils down to expectations and patience based on your degree. Good Luck!
