and is the job youre in now a carry on from your degree or is it something really random?
Could drastically change by the end of the 4 years though.
i'm not settling for anything less.
a BA(HONS) in Sculpture. Awesome.
Hahaha, that was a waste of time.
Brilliant 3 years though.
that it sounds appealing?!
..sounds like it could be interesting for at least 5 minutes. I work in a hospital. that is most definitely NOT. FUN.
i get to look at pictures of nasty injuries / conditions. I also learned that my smoking habit will definitely result in a very swift and very painful end. Good for weight loss though! ha.
I work in fracture clinic so i see a lot of people with barbaric looking external fixators (i.e metal screwed into their heads etc etc)
I also used to work in lung cancer. Not nice. 14" tumours...
The job I do now is not totally unrelated, but it has certainly swayed from the "interiors" route.
I am now, sort of, a journalist.
Currently temping (no job at the moment), before starting an MA in Journalism in September.
Now an accountant.
Pretty cool eh?
social research methods masters, I hope to be a social researcher but think im kidding myself
MSc Health Psychology
Hopefully PhD Health Psychology next year
Clean driving licence
Adept in software applications including the internet, Minesweeper and Mario Kart 64
I guess so...?
I just think it is the most stupidly titled degree ever. Basically means "we don't discuss Freud".
Although I have deleted minesweeper off every Windows PC I have access to, and I was never no good at MK64. The internet also loves me like a sunbeam.
I have a series of learn-at-home French CDs, that counts right?
avec une toilette
although i've only finished my first year of it. it might not have employability written all over it, but man, i'm having a lot of fun
They are directly related
I have two diplomas:
and Emergency Planning.
MA Spanish & Portuguese
MSc By Research Hispanic Studies
short term the job i'm about to get is related and long term i'm probably gonna try do a PhD
Kinda use both only the first one gets me money to spend on gear for the 2nd :P
FEEL MY HONS
AND MY MA
oh hang on...
Property development and Planning BA (Hons) with an MA in Planning
good look finding a job
and its good:)
but property people make me wanna spit razors
one of which I am not, its a stable job for me, but never the smug faced arse the stereotype is attatched to. The job I have is a useful one in affordable housing.
I've been working as a Regional Planning Assistant for the last year, I leave in 18 days and start my MA in Planning in September.
where you studying at?
heavily tilted towards biomedical stuff
Now work in a hospital, in a small workshop in the basement, designing/making things for wards, rehab devices, adjusting stuff like wheelchairs, mending beds, gas flow equipment and whatever else the nurses break. So got pretty lucky with that.
At least normally. Today and yesterday I've just been sitting around as no-one else is here and I have to man the phone in cae there's an emergency.
not a lot really.
But am intending on doing English Lit, Politics or something soon. Just cause I'm bored.
I really really really should've done Graphics or similar. Now I am too old and I will have to work down the pit to pay for my childrens education, then force them into a career that they loath so i can live my life through them.
Now I've got a mishmash of qualifications and experience.
Jack of all trades, master of none. Which makes plotting a career path rather aimless.
Next year I will be taking a PGCE in the same subject.
Ed Balls wants me to have a masters and still get paid an average salary. Ed Balls can fuck off.
he has a silly name.
I used to work with someone called Joy Balls.
but i don't really tell people the Cultural Studies part.
i now work in admin. it's amazing.
Graduates earn more, fair enough, but not when every fucker has one and they include rectal refloxolgy courses.
are you a games designer now?
but yeah it's very good, i'd definitely recommend it.
into a BSc hons. in geography.
and its FUN.
but i don't know what to do after :(
Trying to finish DPhil in Immunology
I'm now a civil servant. :(
not quite sure what to do with it to be honest.
but won't you be able to 'top yourself up' with other modules if you need to?
Im doing a BA Hons in Music Technology and Innovation.
ba. well, it turns into an ma after a few years, but it doesn't really count as one.
I don't have a job at the moment but I'm looking to do work in that area, as I have done in the past.
im pretty sure im not going to be a lawyer when i leave though
MA Curating Contemporary Art
..la di da
I've just finished my first year of it, got another 3 to go (I get to spend a year studying in America). As for a career, I really couldn't care less about one if I'm honest. I have no interest in earning big sums of money or having some high flying career, unlike most of the people I live with who seem only to be at university so they can get a "good" (ie well paid) job at the end of it all and have some nice career path to follow.
currently in my 3rd year, on placement at a reasonably well known aerospace company working in supply chain.
The only thing i have decided so far is i don't want to work in supply chain.
MA International Journalism - thankfully, of use.
Luckily I bagged a decent job at the end of it, which is surprisingly rare for those doing journalism courses. I should have studied history or a language at BA level, though.
I am not religious. I work in publishing, specifically Children's Books publishing. It is very fun. Today our marketing director dressed up in one of our new character suits we recently had commissioned... tee hee...
LLM law (or Oxford equivalent thereof) at the moment
PhD law next year
I anticipate getting a job that's pretty much totally to do with these, which would probably be a good thing after 7 years in total :P
PhD in Theoretical Nuclear Physics
I am now an office worker.
