Lost and pissed off

Hi guys,

I doubt many of you guys remember one of my last posts from a while ago, but I'm a 21 yr old graduating from a no-name university, and I am in a kinda cruddy situation where I have good credentials from an education perspective, but no connections and facing a terrible job climate in my state (Connecticut). I have a hard time finding work even within the state (where people at least know what my university is), and applying for stuff outside the state has been relatively fruitless.

A lot of people have told me to go for a masters degree at a top school to fix that issue, but a lot more people tell me to get a job first that will help pay for that degree so that I am not taking a $100k gamble. I spoke with a friend recently who graduated from a pretty nice MBA program, but has been struggling to find work. Even she recommended I get work experience first.

Unfortunately, that creates a chicken before the egg situation as the point of the degree was to get a job, but the point of a job would be to get the degree. It feels like I'm trapped.

I hate begging people for job leads, but do any of you guys have recommendations? I'm technically gonna graduate in May, but I will have fulfilled my degree requirements by the end of January so I won't need to stay in this state anymore. Can go anywhere in the country. That would also mean I could start off with an internship in the spring, if that's something that would be preferred.

I'm an MIS major and I have experience in business analysis, project management, and Attack Surface Management aspects of cyber security. I have a little bit of work experience in each of those areas, and I'm willing to delve deeper in any of those areas.

Thanks guys.
