    Right, I've graduated with a 2:1 degree in June and have got nowhere since. I have applied for soooooo many jobs, even jobs which don't require or are related to my degree and I have still got nowhere

    I have work experience and I currently work in retail part time.

    Everytime I do a job search, 99% of vacancies are for "recruitment consultants". The job description is always brief which is suspicious, and I'm guessing I'll be sat on a phone all day calling people up. - But the money seems quite good, around 18k upwards.

    Does anyone do this as a job? Can anyone give me any more info?
