Personal Experience

Going to admit. This was pretty much me for the year after I lost my job. Then I stopped looking and wrote comics instead. I'm so hungry...

I know it far to well...

Been there, done that, still trying to get off the food stamps. I do currently have a job that has decent long term possibilities, but it still won't get me off the food stamps without a little something extra on the side.

Yeaaaah, I was never told as much directly, but I got the "overqualified" thing all the time. :/

@IRS Agent: That really is the only chance you have if you take any kind of education beyond a high school diploma, irregardless of it being a trade school or an actual college.

@aqua: That slightly depends on what the field of study is. If it's something like Computer Programming, or any other field where you wouldn't need the employers equipment to do the work, then create a portfolio to present to prospective employers. That portfolio is just as useful as having done an internship, but if it is any kind of field where it's impossible to create a portfolio (such as being an accountant, attorney, or doctor) then get an internship ASAP, it's the only chance you have unless a company is paying for you to go to college to make you more useful to them.
