    Hi, i've recently decided not to go to uni, and have decided to go into full time work. The problem is i'm finding it impossible to actually secure a job. I've sent off my C.V for a few admin jobs, accountancy trainee etc, but no luck. Has anyone managed to secure a good job just with A-levels?
    Or got any tips or advice?

    Lots of the big companies usually have career opportunities available for school leavers. Depends what you want to go in to - some of the accountancy firms will take you on with good A levels and then sponsor you to do a qualification. Or perhaps going in to some sort of retail management training? Get on to job websites, see what's available.
