Many people are considering alternatives (some are listed below). However, they are not for everyone. Simply because you cannot get a job does not mean you will automatically be selected for one of these alternatives. The competition is stiff and the selection process can be very long. My be advice is to speak with someone involved in the organization now or previously to find out if it may be a viable option for you.

(I know at least 2 people who have been AmeriCorps members. Email if you want advice or recommendations. I'll see what I can get for you.)

JETT Programme (The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme)

Peace Corps

Student Conservation Association

Teach for America

World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF)
(I know someone who has done this and loved it! Email if you want advice.)

Graduate/Professional School
(I've got plenty of insight on this one and plenty of friends who have been there.)

Know of an alternative that is not listed? Post your comment and let us know! Also, more information on 'the graduate school experience' is coming soon!
