    An interested person.

    Or perhaps your new stalker. :ninja:

    In the job market, this is not universally true, though if I were you I wouldn't follow Frenchie's advice.

    However, there's places that value academic skills. You know how to research, write, analyse etc. You'll be fine.
    Perhaps but you know me well enough to know that me teaching in a private school or doing IB is about as likely as a massive conversion to Catholicism. The trouble is, I think, that right now isn't the best time to be completing. Something will eventually turn up but it's probably not going to be something that I will enjoy a great deal or give me the freedom to write and work in the way that I would like to.

    well no but that's reality isn't it. Likelihood is you're not going to really like the job you're in for several years. Generally speaking you're going to have to lump it and work in somewhere **** for a while until the opportunities appear. I fully expect to head straight to McDonalds after a Masters.

    Hehe, living where I live tescos or maccy d's wouldn't employ the likes of me - there are plenty of single mothers, teenage useless folk, and those working through their undergrad. The ubiquitous "overqualified" stigma. Sounds like an excuse, I know, but in an area with notoriously poor uptake of higher education someone with a complete set of degrees has kinda jumped over the cliff like a lemming.

    It's the same where I am and there are graduates in various ****ty places. to be honest they probably would employ you if you approached them in the right way.

    Your faith is probably misplaced. Those people desperately need a job and are almost certainly not as mobile as I could potentially be but to stay here right now is necessary and to run away for individual gain is unfair. Besides, if push came to shove are they going to employ a person who would go at the slightest opportunity or one who would work in those kinds of jobs for a long time? The latter, I'm pretty sure.

    I do not look like a 3 year old you **** and neither do I date them we have had this argument before and we concluded that French women are usually smoke filled ugos. However I have made an exceptions for some of then today :P
    We've also had the argument that either you're a sexist pig, or have a freakishly terrible sense of humour before, but you don't seem to have taken anything away from it...

    I don't think you need to worry about going around and making exceptions for people anyway dear

    EDIT: Nice SPAG too :yy:
