“You were a great candidate, but don’t have the years of experience we want.”
What? Come on. Who is ever going to have 5+ years of experience for a role where you’re hiring a fresh college graduate?

This was my first year out of college…and I had experience. One company told me that all my experience was internships…well, it’s not like I was just getting coffee!!
