    I'm in my second year studying Literature BA(Hons) but I don't know what to do after I graduate.

    At school I felt pressured to apply to university (oddly we weren't told much about apprenticeships) and while I enjoy my course, I just don't know what to do after I graduate. I thought Literature would be a good option since I enjoyed English at school and I heard it can lead you down different paths- give you more options.

    As strange as it sounds, I definitely do not want to go into teaching!

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Most grad jobs don't have a specifc degree requirement.. So it's more a question of what you'd be interested in doing after uni.

    It's all well and good to suggest journalism, teaching etc.. but you also have other corporate careers like marketing, HR, general management open to you.
