    Hey everyone,

    I'm sure many of us are in the same boat and others have been lucky enough to secure a graduate scheme/job or placement. I however am becoming increasingly worried on getting a job in my field at the end of university!!
    I'm on target for a 2: 1, possibly a 1st if I push hard enough for a degree in chemistry, I'm in the final year and am from the north east. I've been looking and applying for jobs but they're sparse in my area or usually require some kind of experience. Initially I thought chemistry would be quite a versatile degree and could branch off into engineering/technology and research. But I've had many rejections and responses such as 'we don't believe you can fulfill your potential in this role'. I've had my professor, parents and career advisers look at my CV and they all think it's very good and academic. So now I feel as if I'm at abit of a dead end and starting to panic! I'm contemplating a masters in research but is this really beneficial if not planning to do a PhD?
    I'm on all the useful sites such as indeed, gracracker and cogent and no sign of new schemes coming up around Durham area which is frustrating..
    Is anyone else in the same boat and what are your plans?
    Thanks guys
