So basically, I'm still at college, and after applying for Uni to study graphics, I've been rejected from 4/5 of my Uni's which is a bit of a knock back which has made me think if I even want to do graphics as a career.
Had some ideas springing up in my mind on what else I could do, and a fire-fighter was one of them. Like the idea of it being a physical job and not being stuck behind a desk. (I know at first I wont be getting sent out on calls etc, but its something to work too..)
Anyway, just wondering if anybody's gone down this path after college, or uni, and what they have done about it?
you'll struggle to find any vacancies, best off training as a support firefighter (cant remember exact name but basically if you live within 1 mile of the station you get a call etc to help out. its voluntary but a friend had to start like that before he even got the job, think he did it for circa 3.5years as a voluntary job ontop of his other job before he got a chance to apply to become a paid member
