ROME, ITALY - 25 October 2013: Beatrice Belli, 27, poses for a portrait in Rome, Italy, on October 25th 2013.
Beatrice Belli, currently unemployed, has recently graduated with a masters in Social Media, with a thesis about "Social TV and second screen applications for companion devices" after 3 months of research in the United States. She bet on this field because she felt that once she would return back home in Italy, she could use her experience to find a job. Instead, when she searched for jabod, the responses she got from companies was that she was too qualified, and that it was cheaper to hire only interns. She was offered internships with no salary.
While looking for full-time opportunies, Beatrice works part time as a low-paid freelancer a media agency and as a waitress. "After returning to Italy I moved in with my parents, which is frustrating after you have been out of your house for some time and made a life for yourself", she says.
