Decide to look for a job… but learn that you need experience to get a job, and to have experience you need a job, Lame.

4. Phase 4: Volunteer

Realise there’s no chance you’ll get any decent experience in time for sending in applications - so you begin volunteering for anything to meat up the resume phase
