    OK, my boyf is extremely clever for mechanics and electronics and stuff like that, but he's becoming disheartened with his course as it is all middle managment crap at the mo, and he's started to think that he won't be able to find a job he likes and that being self emplyed would be too difficult.

    He's started talking about helping other people out - he's really caring and interested in medecine. he was thinking about training to become a paramedic, or working in a business whereby he'd invent and make things which could help the disabled, elderly or people with learning difficulties.

    Any suggestions as to what he could do? I don;t want hime to give up engineering as its truly his passion and vocation i beleive.

    help, please!!

    If he's got any free time he might want to get involved with helping people through Remap: http://www.remap.org.uk/

    They custom build equipment that isnt available commercially but which can improve a disabled persons quality of life, they are a charity though so it would be more about having something voluntary to do outside of his course to keep him sane than a job or way out.
