im a recent graduate (well, 2 years ago) and at the moment am out have work,having become fed up trapsing from call center to call center. i am looking to start my own business and am doing a bit of research.

Basically, im looking to provide a comprehensive student support sevice at the universities and colleges that have the highest drop out rates. students could talk to me about whatever they want, and i will give then advice there and then, get back to then asap or direct then to the most appropriate place. i know alot of unis offer these services but they all seem very fragmented and very formal.

do u lot think this would be useful for students?

or do u think what is on offer at universities at the moment is sufficient?

pls give honest answers!!

cheers, joe

I'm fairly sure that this would be covered by the university pastoral care system. I doubt that someone who is on the edge and emotially fragile would be in a state to try and pay someone to listen to their problems. It implies insensitivity and in a sense, exploitation. Most universities would be very well versed in handling these situations, and although it might work as a charity or a volunteer service, I personally can't see it working as a business.
