    Hey I am at a bit of a dead end with carreer options, so I am appealing for advice as a last resort.

    I am a hard working student but not an over achiever so I need to be realistic about my qualifications.I am curretly studying A-levels in Law, Politics, Business and Media, so I'm looking more for an office based job...

    If anyone has any useful advice, websites etc. I would be very greatfull

    I remember being stuck in your position, here are some websites available online:

    http://www.s-cool.co.uk/ (also a good revision website, on the side has a bit about careers and a quiz to find what thing your suited to)
    http://www.connexions-direct.com/index.cfm?go=Careers (has some good advice)
    http://www.fasttomato.com/index.aspx (I had a look at this a few years ago and found it also useful - quiz based)

    Do you have a particular subject you like? You could do a degree in that subject...
