Feel a bit lost with my degree and the potential for getting a decent job Watch

    So I'm studying BSc Nutrition, in my second year. Although, I'm not sure exactly where I want to go. I know for a fact that I need a "hands on" practical job. Crammed in an office just doesn't do my personality justice. Jobs I've got an eye on consist of Physician Associate, Journalist, Sales and also Civil Services Fast Stream Communication Officer (though it has potential to be extremely paper work heavy so not ideal). I also have took a recent interest in becoming a Paramedic, but it seems I'd have to complete a whole 3 year undergrad once more which isn't ideal (unless there is another way)?

    So that's that. Basically I'm not sure where I'm going, but know I want a practical job. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think you'd have to do a 2 year Masters to do Physicians Associate after a degree (?). I know people doing/training for this job and they seem to really enjoy it.
    Do you see yourself enjoying the medical/scientific field or the commercial/sales side more?

    I'd say sales is more in line with me. Although obviously that career path isn't as stable as becoming a PA. Decisions to be made. 🤔

    Recently been looking more into outgoing "people" jobs.

    The police force "police now" grad scheme jumped out as a potential goer.

    Also, the NHS' Human Resources grad scheme - potential goer #2.

    What do people make of these sort of jobs for someone who wants to work with variety and people on a daily basis?

    Thanks again in advance.
