    Hey guys. I'm having tremendous difficulties in getting an ideal job related to my degrees (undergraduate international politics and master's IR). I have an exceptional academic background, but my key problem is experience. I have very little politics-related work experience. I can't afford to do unpaid internships, and that's one of the stumbling blocks and disadvantages I encounter. Are there any other routes into politics-related jobs you could recommend, and most importantly, any way to build connections with people that could help in this regard?

    Politics and international relations are massive fields. What sort of jobs do you want? What is your area of expertise / interest?
