Looking for a job is one of the most tedious and time-consuming things to do. If you just finished college or uni wondering WTF you're going to do, this may help you find your dream job. Scrolling through jobs for hours, sending your resume to 100 different jobs, all while attempting to do something you truly enjoy is quite the challenge.

Working a job you don't actually enjoy has to be one of the worst feelings ever. Yes, it would be great to make 70,000 per year rather than 50,000, but if you don't genuinely like the job then what is the point of doing it? What ultimately matters is how happy you are while working your job, that should always be your number one priority. Another thing people may do is turn away jobs that don't offer a lot of money. Yes, you just got a degree in something, but never feel like you're "too good and too smart" for a job. Everyone has to start somewhere, just because you have a university degree doesn't mean you don't need years of experience before making 100 thousand annually.

Whether you're looking to make 20,000 or 50,000 this list will definitely help you out. Of course, the more money made annually tends to require more education and experience. It's pretty rare that you graduate from uni and immediately start making 100,000 per year and if you manage to then you're basically #goals. But if you're just beginning to find a job there are plenty of options between 20 and 35 thousand. It's time to get job hunting, good luck!
