What does everyone do?
Just being nosy.
If you're studying, what are you studying?
What do you WANT to do?
and am going to study Literature of the english variety in Burnel
Probably sounds boring to most people, but I get to travel around a bit, do some mystery shopping and what-not, and I've been given a big budget to organise the franchise conference. I find this quite exciting.
So at least it's something different. Most people I speak to hate admin work, I don't mind it though!
english lit, french and history.
i will read history of art somehwhere
and i have a weekend job in American Apparel
you sound busy...
should you REALLY be on DiS right now....?
Its research...into something...somehow...
i hate writing that word.
Geography and I have no idea what I want to do afterwards. Why does everyone keep asking :(
doesn't it? People always ask that when they find out you're studying.
I get this a lot :/
shout it at you?
Business Analyst at a tech firm.
I WANT to be a billionaire.
that's a bit wacky. what are they used for?
and am unemployed. Wanna be a social researcher.
how was it?
i really can't choose what i want to do.
but people come from psychology too. It is kind of boring but atleast I now have some actual skills that will hopefully lead to an interesting job
so much :(
over a week ago, would you?
i just didn't like the fact that i was forced to stay in bed. i'd like to not have a job but move around and do stuff like look after animals on farms as and when i feel like it.
like a great job. you should do it.
or Rolf Harris...ball is in your court.
pay would be poor, non?
you could cat sit AND do your usual job....
which is pretty boring, but i want to a course in copywriting and art direction afterwards so i can make adverts <3
quite niche, though, eh?
but being a creative would be the best job ever.
being a creative. what a phrase.
not an 'official' job title.... but i did work exp in an ad agency and they were all just the 'creatives'. they just go to exhibitions all day and piss about.
and occasionally do some work.
if i'm honest. I work in a creative industry and would never call myself a 'creative'. people that do that are just plebs.
hi, my names claire and im a creative. or would that make me sound like a massive twat? copywriter probably sounds more professional.
I haven't got a job at the moment
<insert 'fucking lazy student cunts' comment>
Even most of the first year is covering topics already covered at A Level (which will be useful if you have done that, but not essential).
Most universities have a credit system for experiments in the final year, where you take part in a number of experiments as a first year student so that you can use the new batch of first years when you reach your dissertation. I've probably enjoyed that the most of my degree so far, because it's the only time I've felt truly emerged in the subject, as modules in other course have to be taken in first year.
I would recommend it, and if you asked me this time next year I probably would more so seeing as it'll be 100% psychology in the coming terms
I'm enjoying my psychology A level course but i'm a bit unsure about the research.
Maybe it's just because i've just finished AS, but a lot of the studies spend time on areas that really don't need to be researched like 'the more time you spend on the internet, the more time you stay indoors.'
I'm worried that if the whole course is like this, then i would stop doing any work.
and probably at A2 level too, dependant on how you're taught.
should i go for History of Art or Politics in my new degree?
i've already put my name down for english and history
i saw the london part.
mirri is lovely, i'd be a bit less forgiving if you called me dave or something, though.
tough question. i really enjoyed history of art & architecture when i did it at uni, but that was only a small part of it.
i think politics would probably be more beneficial.
depends what you want to achieve in the long run.
probs a teacher.
soz for calling you mirri
I might need a hitman.
Sea food Surprise £50
Lobster Troubadour £70
i want to be a planner for a local authority in london
albiet it in a more convulted fashion.
any tips for them?
i'm considering it (though probably only if i got a job which would pay my fees). i did geography BA and am struggling to do something remotely interesting and/or relevant.
unfortunately, there aren't a great deal of jobs going at the moment cause of the CREDIT CRUNCH, no-one's really building anything so private companies don't need so many planners, and local authorities need less too, but it's interesting and hard work without ever being stupid
i'll need a job that actually interests me one day. either that or lose my life on here. or both. who knows! all part of the excitement i'm sure.
studying history at newcastle uni in just over a month.
I have "anal" in my job title.
my dream job would involve playing with cats all day.
team up with zabakdaz and open some sorta cat sanctuary
I wanted to steal it.
best cat EVER.
I've recently finished an economics degree and I am in the process of courting investment banks. I'm well accustomed with failure though as I have not had a sniff of interest thus far.
and no, I'm not guitly about anything at all.
I like my job very much.
with an "S"
who live in a really depressing weatherbeaten fishing village, and plus my wife was disabled in an accident shortly before miscarrying our first child.
in the city as a legal information specialist. I'm just finishing a masters in information management. I want to get into knowledge management in the near future. I also want to surf and do photography a whole lot more. Thanks.
I won't ask why you didn't study this though: http://tinyurl.com/6hxgej.
Its like doing an PhD in pogo sticking, or something.
I just never felt like I'd be able to make any kind of a successful career out of it. I really enjoy doing it, and I find the technical side of photography fascinating (one day if I ever buy a house I'll build a darkroom), but the thought of having to do baby photos forever because I couldn't survive off photography as a career in any other way depressed me.
I'm hoping in the near future I can get back into it properly without having to worry about doing it to support myself financially. Just doing it for the love of it.
and I respect your choice, but I guess I went the opposite way in studying film and thinking, well, it's at least worth a shot while I'm still young, and I can always do something else if it doesn't work out.
That said, here I am an office worker anyway...
I don't mind my job most of the time, I just hate that I'm only doing it because I don't know what I actually want to do but know that this isn't it.
i try not to think about it. but when there's not a huge amount to do there's not much else to think about!
when it was just original catz. i might download catz 5 tonight.
i've been searching google for what it was and it's not working.
it was a dog in 3d.
get in on the business plan with gunty and zabakdaz.
klaire likes video games n stuff, you could team up with her as well.
that went on to be a solicitor after studying law, actually. you would study something else with it, yes?
like politics or something?
Do not do law unless you want to be a lawyer from the outset, otherwise it's a lot of hella hard work for nowt.
that went to to cat-g.
Policy Advisor in the Department for Business and blahdy blah.
I want a job that involves doing the stuff that the people Andrew Marr talked to last night do.
<3 it :)
i.e. down-trodden office minion.
I start evening classes next month in web design/flash. FUN TIMES.
I have no idea what I want to do. I'm just trying to build up some skillz. I'll probably become a chef or a bookcase later on.
studying english at uni
i want to do something easy
Its really dull. I am a graduate looking for a career in something else
organising the recovery of scrap rail.
there's not a lot of work to do so i spend most of my time on the internet.
i'm leaving to go to america for three months in about 7 weeks. my employers don't know. i should probably tell them.
it involves writing the odd programme billing for Freeview/Sky/Virgin Media TV guides (or EPGs are they're snazzily known round here) and the BBC's iPlayer website.
But the bulk of my time is spent playing Stick Cricket and buggering about on Last FM. I'm leaving in under a fortnight though, because my contract's up and I want out of London tbh.
Already have a Degree & Masters
Currently studying for a postgrad diploma
Basically I know ALOT about drugs/treatment and the basics of diseases and diagnosis
No idea what I really want to do, but it isn't this :S
I look after the buying and installing servers and things for Avon. It's a good job and only 15 minutes walk from home!
Study Business and Marketing at Bangor, which isnt too bad to be fair. I'd really like to work in sports marketing afterwards
Im doing my dissertation on 'does sponsorship in F1 represent value for money', so now have contacts in 4 F1 teams. McLaren 'strongly suggest I get in touch once I have completed my studies', so it could yet happen.....
Or, they could just be stringing me along like some lapdog ;)
and hate it. Right at this very moment I'm waiting for a call to say if I got a job I interviewed for last week. It's highly unlikely. I totally fluffed it up. I'm studying English Lit through the Open Uni in October. Really excited about it.
I didn't get the job :-(
still, at least you're getting out of admin! i'm going to be an admin drone for the rest of my life :(
Graduate, probably looking for a career next year or at least a job that enables me to only work a couple of days a week (but still get paid enough to live on).
I'm very bored.
"a job that enables me to only work a couple of days a week"
...what job is this?
currently: policy officer in the Welsh Assembl Government.
ideally: something else.
Should any of you get to try gjetost, a Norwegian cheese, do it!
applied for a new job earlier this week. i hope it get it.
at Southwold Pier (the holiday choice for many celebrities and Gordon Brown, you know).
Only for another 7 weeks-ish when I become Canada-bound, and unemployed.
