When you graduate at the top of your class from an Ivy League University, you expect to get at least one job offer, right? 

For Highland Park resident Matt Meltzer, that wasn’t the case.

After he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2003, he couldn’t find a job, anywhere. That was, until he searched in different continents.

Meltzer moved to Argentina and lived and worked there for a year after graduating.
