I saw on your profile that you are studying for a LLM so I presume you have a LLB.

Well, there's a variety of career you can go into with a LLB i guess...
How about trying out being a legal adviser with one of the big MNCs ?

Well, you can probably enrich yourself with the workings MNCs as well as participating in their numerous projects, and probably enjoy travelling around the world Subsequently, I am sure they won't ill treat you in terms of salary.. so I would say it's pretty much of a win-win situation
I have an LLb and a BSc but I don't want to do anything legal. I'm looking for a less serious and more fun way of making a living to be honest!

Absolutely. Quantity Surveyors, (certainly the senior level "chartered" folks that make it overseas) can earn rather a good whack.

Often makes me laugh when you hear about people talk about "high earning careers" as nobody ever mentions the construction industry which you can really make a fortune in if you know what you're doing.
i understand completely what you're saying, and i never thought not once that someone working in the construction industry, could not earn good money

what are your hours 9-5 40 hr week?

You're probably right. Perhaps hot air ballon piloting is best kept as a flight of fancy.

How about being an Entrepreneur, it's fun dealing with the various challenges.. and you can probably sell stuffs related to your degree of expertise and interests

Of course, the initial part might be hard..

Or you could take it up as a hobby and see how it suits you.

I don't suppose switching to part time hours is a real option?

On another (pretty much unrelated) note...I always imagined you'd be good at event management - you know big concerts/parties/parades etc...it would use a little bit from most of your background - you don't have to be a people person (although you do have to be able to make people do what you want) and the work is (to my mind) good fun.

Hmmmm....that sounds interesting. I think I might enjoy that sort of thing. I wonder how you get into it. You see, having two degrees already (and being of advancing years......though not that bloody advanced) I really don't want to go and do a whole lot of new study to change my career. I'm sick of learning stuff.

I wouldn't need a degree in event management or anything daft would I?

As far as I know it's all about making a few contacts and having a whole lot of confidence.


(and a fair amount of bullsh*t )

They tend to be small companies/consultancies so it might simply be a case of getting in with someone who's already got all the contacts experience who's getting tired of doing all the work and wants to hand it on to someone else.

Thanks PQ. I'll certainly look into it.

I've been getting mightily pissed off with my career just lately. In the 10 years since I graduated I've been building stuff and despite earning a very pleasing salary I have recently come around to thinking "There must be better songs to sing than this" (borrowed that from Educating Rita)

Anyway, as I drove into work this morning I glanced to my left and there on the horizon, floating effortlessly in the clear blue sky, were 5 hot air baloons. Now THAT, I thought to myself, is what I should be doing....a hot air balloon pilot.

Any thoughts anybody? Or can anybody think of another "job for Howard"
A politician - you'd fully support the Lib Dems of course

Well, I have a BSc in Quantity Surveying and a LLb in law. I'm really not interested in doing anything remotely related to either though.
