    Hello again

    Basically I am so lost right now. My self confidence in terms of finding a job is really down at the moment. It started whilst at university, as i've said before I wanted to become a teacher but then suddenly had extream fear of bcoming one because of my sisters bad experience at the end of her pgce. I was alos struggling to find any part time job anywhere. i felt that i was smrt but i was struggling to find anyone who would hire me. i had to resort to working in a mial company and that was just for a few weeks. my confidence was at all time low and it impacts me even now that and i feel like I am worthless to any employee. I wanted a professional career but i feel like this isn't going to happen. i work for a public sector department and feel like i have no real direction here. I would love to work in a co operate environemnt and my current job has helped me get some experience but I think I wouldnever be able to get into something liek amnageemnt accouting or consultancy especially since i have a 2:2! I don't know where to go and where I can get help to get into these fields.

    I am so lost and i feel like my worrying is getting out fo control at the moment. Someone pleae help!

    You are a graduate and brighter than many. List the issues you have and then break each one down into how you will solve it.

    What do you mean by a co operate ebvironment? is that corporate or co-operative?

    If you want to get into management accounting then find out how you become a management accounting. Work out the steps you need to take and then just do them. the nice thing about accountancy is you can become part qualified, so you cna start showing employers you are serious and have the aptitude by passing exams.

    It may mean getting certain forms of experience, it may mean getting certain qualifications. Its pretty straightforward to plan, but it does take effort and determination to see it through.

    You might also wnat to look into getting some confidence and or more self esteem.

    Don't give up! I'm in pretty much the same position as you but I am interested in trying the PGCE for myself whilst disregarding the many 'horror' stories. I can't offer you much help in terms of Managemant Accounting, but you could try e-mailing companies that have these jobs and see if they have anything? I've seen a few job adverts where they even pay for the right training you need if you have the kind of personality and skills that they are after but just lack the right qualifications. : )
