Oh, history, that’s super interesting! I hope you’ll find a nice job soon.
A friend of mine is currently in the same situation: he graduated in history and can’t find a job. He decided to go back to university to specialize in one particular field while working a half-time job in a supermarket.
I did a similar thing in my field. I specialized in a small niche subject and became an expert on that. So I did pretty much the opposite of what the job market demands. I think it’s good advice to aim at becoming this:
instead of that:
I am a web accessibility consultant, btw., and what I do is help companies to make their websites accessible for people with disabilities.
In Portugal they say it like that. Even in beauty stores you have to be an expert in everything and they even ask 20 years of experience.
But he´s lucky if he found a job in part time, because here even that is difficult. I guess I will be trying, because I can´t go back to university, it´s too expensive.
Your job is very interesting btw, it changes peoples lives
History is cool but its very hard. Sometimes me and my friends wanted to give up but we did it.
