Almost done with Uni... NO idea what job to search for... watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I am in my last year of Uni. My degree is English and German.

    I have no idea what sort of job to apply for, which is concerning me slightly since I should probably be applying already.

    I always used to want to be an upper school teacher, until about 3 years ago when I decided not to, but have no idea why or what to do instead.
    I am interested in Media/Film/TV and am organised, very creative, a good writer, good with the PC etc. Could perhaps be a PA? I considered journalism but I am not sure that really interests me either. .

    Any other suggestions? I am completely lost!

    im in the same boat except mine is english and history. not the foggiest what to apply for. was kinda thinking advertising/ marketing but have no business experience... so.. lol i think im just gonna finish my degree, hopefully graduate (fingers crossed!) and then see what happens. maybe travel, maybe work, who knows

    I'd suggest maybe you have a gap year, maybe do some temping/agency work or travelling maybe, until you DO know what you want to do.

    Nothing worse than getting into an industry, and then realising that you don't want to be there at all.
