First, congratulations to your niece for doing so well in a challenging subject! Second, I know she must be very disappointed at what's happening with the job applications. Imo, employers miss out on a lot of talent by having such rigid requirements, but I know they have to weed out applicants, as pps (previous posters) have said. Third, I'm sure she'll get a job, eventually, as pps have also said. I hope she's not getting discouraged. I haven't applied for a job for a long time, so Idk how it works these days, lol, but I wonder if going to places in person would help? Also, I agree that once she gets that first job, it will be easier. So I hope she takes whatever comes along and doesn't insist on waiting for her "dream job," as some young people do. But I know there's nothing you can do about that, unless, maybe she asks for your advice.
