    If I have an ordinary degree in International Politics what kind of employment will be available to me? Since an ordinary degree is just a pass worried that I'll be stuck in retail forever...

    Do you have any work experience? That will make a big difference.

    To be perfectly honest then I dont think it will get you very far at all. You are better off doing some professional examinations to supplement this and working your way up in an organisation. You will be excluded from the application criteria from almost all jobs requiring a degree.

    Unfortunately only in retail and sales Edit: I am looking to volunteer for the Citizens Advice Bureau and other organisations to get some experience, which may provide some help.
