Schooling is over, and it feels like my life is aswell

Well I just finished my last semester in college. I am a mass media major and a marketing minor. I absolutely love the production aspect, and have looked forward to doing it. About six months ago, I realized that I had ZERO exoerience to get a good job. So instead of graduating, I decided to come back for an extra semester and try to get an internship. Luckily, I was able to land an internship with one of the big networks. It has been a great experience, but it's coming to an end very soon, and I don't think they are going to keep me. What kind of hurts is that they are probably going to keep another intern, who is a junior in school. He's a great kid though and we've become somewhat good friends, so I do wish the best for him.

ANyway, personally, I have not been able to sleep for more than four hours for a good two months. Awake or asleep, I am stressing over the job search that is about to come. If I learned one thing from this internship, it's that people my age don't come anywhere close to doing what I have been taught to do in school for the last four years, not in this organization anyway. ANother thing I learned is that almost everyone has something in common. And that soemthing is either that they knew someone within, or a relative knew someone within and got them the job.

Not really sure what to do now. Not even sure where to start looking for a career. I know it's a huge mistake, but I still haven't spoken to the main boss in my internship. I am going to try to do that. How woulld you suggest I handle that? This will be the first conversation I ever have with him. He barely knows my name, and ha;f the time doesn't respond when I say hello to him.

ANyway, any advice is welcomed guys and girls. I would love to have a good night of sleep tonight. Please make it happen.
