Where the fuck are your jobs, Halifax?

So I graduated very recently with a Bachelor of Commerce. I have applied to many companies for entry-level positions in my field. Not one of them has even called me for a fucking interview! The few that do respond only respond to tell me there are currently no positions that match my skill-set and experience. I don't have experience (and how am I supposed to get experience if no one will give me any?????).

So I find some specific positions in my field that (gasp!) do not require experience. Not a fucking word from them either! I just don't understand-- my resume and cover letter are both well written with virtually no spelling/grammar mistakes, and I have all the skills required for such positions (they are clearly stated in my resume and cover letter)-- I don't know what the hell else they want from me!

Why did I get this degree if it can't even get me a low-end admin. position? I seriously am coming to the conclusion that you have to be the spawn of the company owner/recruiter/whatever to land these fucking jobs! Looks like I have to move! —I like living here, but this place sucks for jobs!
