Near enough £15k working at Aston in the Market Research office.... basically doing what it says on the tin - research for and about the University!

Placements are on offer in so many different areas. What course are you on/going to be on?

I was doing Marketing at the time and took a job paying £12k pa and £3k end bonus, as a Sector Skills Co-ordinator. Its as mad as it sounds, I worked for a quango dealing with 3 organisations (government) and dealing with 15 councils, 10 academies and about 10 alliances. Organising things, marketing things, liaising with people, going to meetings about stuff like arranging regional events to tie in with the olympics. There was a lot more but it was complicated and probably already sounds boring.

I got €703 p/m as a language assistant in a school in Germany (language degree rather than business). You guys seem to have been paid more on placement than I get in my first job out of Uni.

Well Languages is a totally different sector, if we graduated in IB and went into the City that would be totally different. Plus there are companies out there cashing in on the recession.

I don't work in the languages sector. In over a year of applications I've heard back from 2 companies for language related jobs, one said I needed more experience and the other was a translation job for which they picked someone I knew from Aston who didn't do translation studies when it got down to us as the final two.

Sorry if I sound bitter, but there is very little going that I'm qualified for so I've been stuck in a call centre for a year where someone yesterday actually didn't trust me to take down her credit card number correctly and asked to speak to my supervisor.

Sorry I didnt realise that when you said first job out of uni it was a normal job, of course thats going to be less. Placement jobs are like slightly adjusted grad jobs so of course the wage will be higher, a call centre doesnt set rates expecting people to have a degree and do things with that standard of knowledge. And yeh I would think with your degree you can only get very specialist jobs at a higher income level .

The wage I've been getting hasn't been high in my case, not compared to what I actually would earn.
