He might be searching too narrow a field, looking for the "perfect" job.


I did job hunting for close to a year after graduation, as I was looking for a more research and development orientated position and was getting discouraged not finding anything I like. Got an interview with a company from a family member's referral for something I wasn't looking for, a position in a small office instead of a large lab. If not for the family connection, it is something I wouldn't have applied for as I don't think it would be something I be interested in. But that's was the job I ended up with and 20 years later, it is something I do enjoy and actually quite good at. So tell him don't just apply for job he thinks he like. Go out an apply for any job out there.
