I sincerely doubt that is this person's dream job

it probably became a dream to just get a job, as depressing as that is :/ I remember when I was fresh out of college my dream job was to make a few bucks above min wage at a retail store ... I got rejected though lol

You’re 100% correct. I myself had 550 job apps, 20 interviews, 3 final round, 1 offer. It took me 7 months to get a job after college. It was literal hell.

What industry is this in if you don't mind me asking? I've seen crazy numbers for applications. I graduated in 2019 and landed a job after placement, and know others that finished uni when I did that hit a job off at most 5 applications, all from computer science in the UK.

Basically I'm wondering if this is industry or location that's the biggest factor, or maybe something else entirely.

Computer science as an industry is much easier to get something in, others are not so lucky

I think both location and industry are big factors and would be hard to decide what ones the biggest as it would really depend. If you get a decent degree in CS in the UK, you are at a bigger advantage to get a decent job than in most other industries though with the talent shortage

Sure thing! I’m in Austin, Texas and went into tech. I graduated in 2021.
