So I'm 25 years I've graduated 3 years ago and currently I'm underemployed. The last copy of months have been difficult as my fixed term contract role ended and I've struggle to obtained a job in my field that I've been working in for the last 2 years. I've been quite fortunate enough that immediately after graduating I got public sector job for a year (due to cuts in public funding my job got cut)and then an Analyst role which was fixed term. But I'm working in retail now and I have to pay my own bills and parents don't really have it like that to give me a loan, the bills are really on my me and believe me when I say that I haven't eating anything all day because I'm trying to pay my rent. I just regret my degree because I try so much and feel like it's was almost a mistake, even with a bit of experience I still haven't gotten a job. When I was at university I was in loads of societies, I did internships and etc. But unfortunate the roles that I landed were in small companies that didn't necessary had a budget for addition staff. I'm just feeling really down about everything.

Whereabouts are you from? With that degree, I'm sure you're sought after and can find a job/apprenticeship, even if it's in something new. What was your previous job?

I live in London. Thing I've tried I have a bit of experience but it's really hitting today to make matters worst I found out that my personal tutor doesn't even work at my university anymore so I can't ask him for a reference. I have bit of project/analyst experience, I did an interview on Tuesday and even the hiring manager stated that regardless of the outcome I have a great profile. It's just frustrating that I'm trying and financially struggling as I have no one to help support me in any way.

Oh I see, unfortunately there's not much I can say to help. All I can say is to keep working on interviews and looking for jobs I guess and good luck. I can imagine rent is pretty steep in London and hard to keep up with?
