Anyone else in a similar sort of position or know of people that are? I graduated in 2013, was working for 8 months but I have had long stretches of unemployment.
My 2.1 is in Law from a RG, no luck on getting a TC so a legal career is out of the window. I don't feel like I can stay in the north east anymore even though I have been here all of my life.
So, leaving my friends and family has to be the way now.
And believe me, the job market is poor here. Just any job would be nice, but I keep getting the old "Oh you're overqualified" rubbish.
I don't know much about London.. is there a better jobs market in the south? I've heard Edinburgh is just as bad, some other poster was saying here how her bro graduated from Edinburgh Uni and had to move south for work after trying to find work at home for 2 years.
I just feel like my life is wasting away.
Graduate unemployment in the north east. Watch

Just apply UK-wide... (or perhaps a radius you're more comfortable with e.g. 200 miles?). If you want something relevant to your interests then you can't afford to be picky about location or company at the beginning. Once you're on the ladder, you'll have more options further down the line. And when recruiters ask if you're willing to relocate, say yes. In fact, it should be on your CV anyway along with your availability. Normally, in order for this to work out, you'll need enough funds for the first month of rent (doubled, since there's the deposit too), spending money and a means of travel.Last edited by Final Fantasy; 18-07-2016 at 03:41.
