Why is it so hard to get a job with 2 degrees? Watch
An old flatmate was making hundreds of pounds a week tutoring people how to play a variety of mobile phones and online games.
I've never played a computer game and don't understand why people want to, let alone pay for a games tutor.
I have a 2:1 BSc degree in Criminology and am just about to graduate with a Merit (2:1) MSc degree also in Criminology. I'm looking at government/ authority etc kind of jobs. They all require 1. some sort of policing back ground?? If I wanted to be a police officer I could have done that without GCSE's let alone a degree!!! 2. you need to have some sort of equivalent to a PC/DC which is ridiculous because where can you get those?? I spent the last year working in youth work for minimum wage, hugely underpaid for the work I was doing. I was the lowest paid individual in the place I worked despite being the most qualified? Even the receptionists were paid more than I was. I cannot even get jobs in Tesco etc to see me through due to me being grossly over qualified. What on earth do I do now? Im so angry that i've wasted 4 years and got myself a whole lot of student debt for really nothing. I was in a better off situation when I was 17 working in retail.
You don't need a policing background to work in the civil service which has schemes open to graduates of any discipline - so does the police service. I would say your masters probably was a waste of time and money since it didn't make you any more employable than your undergraduate degree, but you made that decision as an intelligent adult so can't really blame anyone else for it.
