I just graduated in May with my Bachelors in Accounting. I will be 26 on July 17th. It took me 8 years to finish college! I spent my first three years at a community college. I originally majored in premed because my parents wanted me to be a doctor. I really hated premed courses. I left community college with a 2.2 GPA. When I was 21 years old, I transferred to a state college in New York. where I changed my major to accounting. I got all A's there and I just graduated with a 3.93 GPA. My old bad grades didn't transfer over.
Right now, I am really screwed up. I currently have 120K in student loans to pay off. I didn't work anywhere while I was in college because I wanted to get straight A's. Now, I am very disappointed that I haven't done a finance internship. I want to get a job at a bank, but I have zero experience. I need to get a full time job immediately. How can I ever pay back my huge student loans?

Apply everywhere - Network Network Network. Talk to anyone and everyone from your hair stylist to your, well, your bank teller. Take a temporary position - it can lead to bigger and better things. Everyone knows someone - you could be one step away from the perfect position at any given time. Don't give up! Good Luck.
