Congratulations on your degree, Stijn. There is still only a fraction of the population that gets to this level in computer science, and (overall) we need all the help we can get. :)
One reason that job sites are boring is that they are a tool for the Employer... and not you. Lots of degrees are NOT in demand, and the "rather flat" advertising doesn't matter if you get 10 applicants for one position. Not the case for high level CS jobs, but you can see that the bias dies hard... and may obscure what is actually a good and meaningful job.
I have had the privilege to watch the impact of computers grow over my 30 years in the industry. I have seen banking, finances, medicine, transportation, telecommunications, printing fundamentally changed. Industries like publishing are impacted by the concept of "social media" ... which really didn't exist a decade ago. To amplify the earlier advice, select an area where you want to do good... that excites you... and then fill out a "boring job application" for a job in that sector.
Realize that a lot of exciting advances are actually pretty boring under the covers. Having a glass fiber that had another 4db of gain in the output isn't too impressive... but that may have allowed someone to extend the reach of the internet by another 50 kilometers to a town or village that previously was out of reach. And that 4db of gain may have been the result of minor tweaks to very obscure processes. Very boring... but with very exciting results. :)
With your training, you should be able to see both the forest and the trees. And you should be able to see the paths that need to be followed to get people to a solution they are looking for.... perhaps desperately needing. Keep your eyes on both... try to do something worthwhile... and I think you will have good career.
Best of luck... and keep looking!
