It’s another sad love song for recent and aspiring college graduates alike. All across the nation plays a similar broken record: the summa cum laude, all-star, double economics and finance graduate utilizing an $85,000 degree to work as a barista at a coffee shop making $8.50 an hour. It’s safe to say, college graduates have grown weary of the job hunt and resentful of the return on their educational investment.
Texas native and recent college graduate Ashley Sutton (University of Houston), who graduated honors in finance and entrepreneurship, is one of millions of grads with a lowered morale. “I mean, seriously, I didn’t necessarily think that when I walked off the stage at Hoffheinz Pavillion that the offers would come rolling in, but 8 months later…” says Ashley, “I would never have imagined that the word Graduation would become synonymous with unemployment.” This is why she, with fellow graduate Christa Curry decided to inspire and motivate other graduates like themselves to hit the ground running, forget the negativity, and go after the life they want with the launch of their site Dormroom2Boardroom.com.
“[Dormroom2Boardroom is] witty, funny, to the point, and most importantly very true… [it] hit me to the heart with the feelings I had when experiencing …unemployment, [and] interviewing…” says Dormroom2Boadroom reader and recent graduate Karina Mellado.
