    Choose a better course next time?!

    Wouldn't guarantee you a job, but would be in a much more employable position.

    It's difficult, I'm more into the arts than sciences or business etc. The arts cuts are going to produce a nation of inept unhappy call centre workers.

    Anyone know the code for embedding btw?

    People with vocational / arts degrees always had a hard time getting a job.

    Yeah but with the cuts in the arts it's going to be even harder. We'll all end up like the guy in that video.

    Don't be a ****. He's clearly speaking in English. It's a Northern Irish accent. It's not that hard to understand. Don't you watch Hollyoaks?

    No its someone pretending they are a poet, if they just spoke at a standard speed and emphasis rather than being pretentiously artsy it'd come across far better.

    I think if you watch his other videos you'll see he is a poet. And unemployment might be falling over in GB but here in Northern Ireland it's on the rise.
