Why did people choose their school for this program?Why did people choose their school for this program?

"I picked Devry University due to numerous factors. One factor was the location, as it was only a few miles from my apartment. Another factor was that I had a friend who was able to find a good paying job after studying there."
"I chose this college because, looking back, I was pressured. I believed in what they were selling me. I was naive. It was the wrong decision."

How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"My job hunting experience was very challenging. There were not many companies looking for junior level workers. During the time I interviewed most companies were looking for people with more experience."
"Job hunting was awful because there is a lot of competition and the classes did not cover what I needed to know. I had to go online and teach myself things to get a job later."
