    Dunno, some sort of advocate/judge though. Whatever I do I'll probably end up a massive pain in the ass for the government.

    Community or hospital based?

    I feel like community pharmacists have a boring job.. almost like a sales assistant?

    Sorry if that was offensive
    Haha not offensive I get that off my mates, I'm not really sure yet but industry based pharmacy sounds interesting, if not that then hospital based, gonna find me some hospital work experience soon

    I did some work experience in a hospital pharmacy.
    I spent some time in the lab ^_^

    What put me off it was that they don't really get to interact a lot with patients.. so community based pharmacy seems better in that respect.

    Either way I'm not becoming a pharmacist or even remotely interested in it lol

    My intended career is as an aerospace or astronautical engineer.

    The reason being is that I love space, physics and mathematics. I've always been interested in them, and as I go more in depth with them I just begin to love them even more.

    My ultimate goal would be being an astronaut, however the chances are really slim. Although, I see it as a goal that is possible, it will just take large amounts of luck, determination and hard work.

    Intended Career: 3D artist. Will take anything, tv adverts, games, movies, simulation stuff whatever don't really care. Will be doing 2D artworkz on the side for fun.

    Reasoning: Very safe job as well as high pay and being spoilt for choice forif you're doing ultra-realistic stuff since it's highly skilled and in high demand.

    Steps: Going on a uni in Hertfordshire course in September. Tis one of the best in the world for 3D. Pretty much straightforward from here since the employment rate is high for the course. Just need to put the work in.

    Hardly cynical. I find it amusing how many teenagers are chasing after the top money-filled jobs with probably no idea what they are really like, whether or not they will like the degree, whether or not they will LIKE doing that job...and the guy who implied that everyone who isn't self-employed is 'someone else's *****' well...:rolleyes:

    I looked into this but then there's the issue of not many unis in London offering Pharmacology degrees. I really don't want to have to relocate do you have or are you considering a similar degree?

    I want to follow in my parents footsteps and own a business. I can't imagine myself working under someone else for the rest of my life - I'm not the type to be someone's *****. :innocent: Seeing the **** my siblings go through with their managers is enough to put me off being in that position.

    I want to start off with something easy during uni. Most likely admin, ideally HR because it's good money and my sister can *hopefully* get me in. It's difficult to get into HR without experience in HR but my sister works for one of the councils in London and she gave me the contact details of the best people to work for in that council, plus she's written an email for me to send to them in which I'm asking for training/experience. Hopefully this gets me somewhere. Also, during this time I want to get started on becoming a published author. I'm working harder for that than anything else.

    After 8 years of doing that along with some other stuff on the side I'm hoping to have a minimum of ~110k saved. I'll most likely have almost double that if I work full time. The joys of living at home. With that money I want to go into business with my brother, dad, or sisters. Or, maybe all of them. Or possibly none of them. It really depends on who I'm still speaking to in 10 years time. Whatever happens I have to be my own boss. I won't live being told what to do in a normal job by someone who isn't me. For the moment I'm thinking real estate or something that sells alcohol (e.g. restaurant), but I don't really care as long as I get moneys. :ahee:

    After years of trying to come up with something realistic to do with my life (my ultimate dream is to become a singer but there's no money in that unless I get famous, but that's highly unlikely!) this is the most realistic plan I've come up with.

    Hah, it is cynical in a way. Daring to dream is important, and I'm sure many of these people can attain what they want if they have the willpower. Hard to know whether you'll like a job until you're settled in it/specialised anyway, and people are gonna have to get used to being bored. Hell, there's the LPC for anybody wanting to do law! Nobody 'likes' that. Don't see how saying 'lol you're dreaming' is anything BUT cynical! It's also not THAT hard to get into IB/City firms if you work hard. No harm aiming high. (given my sister walked into a MC firm with a history degree, one bro walked into medicine, and the other walked into hardware architecture, and that's what they all dreamed of doing, it's hardly unrealistic. I'm the only one who failed in our family, so 3/4 success rate. And thats with a **** childhood.)

    Me, I'm just stumbling through life not being quite sure. I'll carry on volunteering for CAB/Helping law firms screw the government, and probably take up a judiciary post when I have enough experience. Not ruling out maritime stuff at this point either, but I seem to get most satisfaction from fighting for the little guy.
