-having never held a job, can you bear the discipline of reporting to work every morning?
-can you take it if people at work politick and backstab etc.?
-can you take it when superiors yell at you or use unkind words?

Answer those to yourself honestly, and then go out and find a job with a humble attitude. Doesn't matter if your mum has been driving you around in her Porsche Cayenne, or that you travel with them on luxurious holidays. You must know that you currently are just a liability to your family and to society.

Be honest with yourself, be critical on yourself. Toughen up. Have the drive. You will eventually make it.

Hi! Congrats on landing your first job and good luck in it! What did you do during the period that you were unemployed? I completed my degree in November but still no job offers. I'm feeling really depressed right now.

I also feel really depressed like you especially when seeing each job applied with hundred plus applicants fighting for just one position.

Went for around 10 interviews, with only 1 shortlisted to the second round. But sadly still did not land any offers. I graduated from one of the local unis, mind sharing what did you do differently from other interviews that landed you that one offer?

I think I went for roughly 8 interviews. All my previous interview I did not manage to go to second round. I only managed to have a second interview on my 8th interview. I was also from one of the local uni. I felt that I managed to do well in my last interview because their tests are all essay based haha.
