    I have a 2:2 in a Physics Masters from Exeter University, and graduated last year. I have a years experience in sales, but it just isn't for me. I'd like to move to London, and possibly do something in data analysis as I think it will suit me well. Every job though seems to require years of experience in whatever I look at and I don't know what I can do job wise. Does anyone have any advise?

    1. You are going to have to put in the time for your job search.
    2. Your 2:2 does you no favours
    3. Use google or indeed and look for vacancies using data and graduate, see what that comes up with.
    4. Do more research on those job searches and look at what they require, even if you dont have it. Especially any professional qualifications which you may be able to take yourself.
    5. Do voluntary work.
    6. Get something entry level that pays for food and accommodation in London and then work up.
