    I have just finished my degree in psychology from Sheff Hallam, scraping a first. Have applied to study Cognitive Neuroscience (part time) and starting volunteer work with the NHS on a weekly basis.


    My concern is that in order to fund my MSc I need to get a part time job. I am able to afford the first year, but need to raise the amount for the second year.


    The job market seems somewhat bleak - can anyone recommend any jobs which I may be able to do.




    Quals:
    1st degree , 460 UCAS points; 360 from BTEC Sports Science, and C, D and E in English, History and Sports A/S lvls respectively.


    Exp:
    In hospital collecting patient opinions, and fundraising with numerous organisations.


    Enjoy using computers, films, games, helping others.

    I would agree, I'm trying to find work at the moment as well and it is hard and competitive, so naturally your best option is just to spam loads of jobs and do whatever you can.

    I would recommend looking online. One site that's been useful to me is the graduate recruitment bureau. They specialize in student jobs, both during term time and in the summer. I believe you need to sign up but it is free, check it out: http://www.grb.uk.com/student-jobs.0.html?sbm=6912

    Good luck in finding a job though!
