Question: what if you could create your own career and apply what you have been learning in varsity in real life situations, would you take it?

I definitely would.

I've lost track of how applications I've submitted in the last three months. All I know is that it's well over 100. Not a single call. I had an interview with Apple in October, but that's the only tip-off I've had that someone is interested in my skills. I wasn't expecting to get a job quickly, but had no idea that it'd be this bad.
