    Hi Guys,

    So this is my situation:

    I've just completed my degree in Forensic and Investigative studies at university and got a 2:1, I have pretty poor A Levels and only got into Uni through a good personal statement and work exp. The degree is a mix of science, law and investigation which seems to employers off as its not specific enough.

    Finding a job is unbelievable, I keep getting through to telephone interview stages and on a couple of occasions final interviews but I'm never successful. The feedback I recieve is always generally I interview well but other candidates are stronger with more exp.

    I dont know what to do, or where to apply anymore as job market is getting even quieter now until september again.

    Has anyone got any advice or if they have a similar degree any jobs they may have seen

    I know its a general issue between most recent grads but any help will be welcome.

    Thanks guys!
