    I am in my finial year at uni doing a Tourism Management degree which I progressed on from a full level 3 BTEC in Travel and Tourism. I had no idea what I wanted to do with it, it was just the direction I was pushed in and had an interest. I also have 10 A-C GCSE's. I know that there's no jobs in the industry and I'm looking to go into something more professional and thinking of doing a 3 month home learning course in legal secretary or either a year college diploma for dental nursing.

    --- which one is more advisable?

    I would also love to hear from anyone who's done either or have course experience. Any career advice would be good.

    Thanks

    I'm not an expert on either field, but I don't think it's case of one being 'preferable' over the other - just whichever one you think you would be happier doing

    Why not post a message in the Legal forum asking about people's experience and knowledge of what's involved with being a legal secretary; and a similar message in the Health subforum asking about dental nursing?

    I presume you've researched things like costs, duration of course, pre-requisites (i.e. any qualifications you need to start the course etc)?

    I know, you hear this all the time but do which one is closer to you and you feel you'd really like to work for a long period of time in that job

    Well, I have a career advice for you. In Tourism Management.
    But you'll have to volunteer for the Department of Culture, Sport and the Deals of the Youth in the municipal administration for several months this summer. The sector of Tourism is the part of the Department too.

    In such a way - you may get volunteer experiance (in the connection with the degree) and grateful letter + your own useful social connections in the Golden Ring of Russia.
