Ever considered the postgraduate conversion course into nursing? You can achieve the same satisfaction with nursing as medicine and it doesn't cost anything, there are plenty of opportunities to specialise in your chosen field. the interviews are much more straight forward
Graduated with a 2.1 from King's College London. No job Watch

Graduated 2010 - still no proper job!
OP, believe it or not, regardless of what university you attended or what classification you got, you're on the same pecking heap as thousands and thousands of other graduates fighting for a full time job! It's hard, I've just about exhausted every avenue and at my witts end BUT still trying, hoping and praying that I don't get to 30, and still be without a job!!!!
Get your CV checked, learn interview technique and hopefully that should help.
PS: I have a friend who went to KCL, graduated 2yrs ago and she's only just managed to get a job at the local hospital doing Research.

Had an interview at a medicine research institution. Got rejected because of lack of experience. ROFL.
How the hell am I supposed to get experience if I seem to be getting rejected whenever I try?
Dammit this is so annoying.
I think I'll just apply to study medicine or dentistry abroad next year.

I've been a long time lurker on TSF and this is the first time I've felt compelled to reply.
When I saw this thread, I was just amazed. The parallels are crazy! I am in exactly in the same position as you. I graduated From Newcastle University in July with a 2:1, I then applied in October for Graduate Medicine. I was so happy to get interviews for Imperial and Warwick and absolutely devastated when I was rejected for both. I've been working as an agency HCA since my graduation but since my rejections I've been feeling very low. I don't think a lot of people realise how much sacrifice you have to make for Medicine and how difficult and heartbreaking it really is to be rejected over and over again.
I feel that a lot of the replies that you've had have been very critical to tell you to "Fix yourself" as I don't think they realise how much it affects a person's self esteem. I have had a multitude of interviews within the NHS and have been rejected each time. It's so demoralising. I, myself have lost complete confidence in my interview skills and I'm terrified of failing another interview and being rejected from anything else.
I wish I could tell you something absolute. Honestly, I'm as lost as you are right now. But I feel a little better knowing that I'm not alone. Don't give up hope. I'm still struggling towards the dream, as are you and many other people out there.
PM if you want to talk.
