    ive applied for the police...starting wage is around 19k, and goes up to around 22k after two years training i think.

    Fitness instructor is a rubbish wage..under 14k

    would you not need some sort of qualifications to do that?

    yes, but they're pretty quick and easy to get, I've just done the mortgage advice ones

    one possible path for you considering you're a graduate would maybe get taken on by a bank with a view to them training you up as an in-house advisor

    I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

    Tried any graduate schemes with some big firms like Ernest and young, citigroup, pwc etc? pay is pretty good to start and it rises lots quickly.

    Drug/depenancy/addiction treatment work is good.

    Can work up to management over a few years.

    there will never be a shortage of jobs in this game.

    Exactly the problem im having! all I keep getting is letters "sorry someone else had more experience ".
    But i dont want a desk job anyway its boring. Ive got my police in september, I also applied for the paramedics but never got it got through to interview as well. Got an application form for the firebrigade which im going to send off but its suppose to be really hard to get into.

    Try and get a grad scheme job in finance. Its not what you have your degree its just the fact you have a degree. If you have a 2.1 or first you will defo get a look in.

    Estate Agent? I know there is the stero-typical image of estate agents but its fab money (if you're any good at selling!), you're not stuck behind a desk all day! (plus you get to nosey round other people's houses!) :-)
