    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?

    im expecting ABB in psychology, maths and media.

    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.
