Unemployed. Work part time ish in a stockroom.

I was an administrator for a debt collecting company for well over two years and hated it. Now looking for something decent where I can actually use my degree in Ancient and Medieval History.


Hah, I have a degree in Ancient history too..good luck with that!!


Yeah, I had a great three years studying, but now I kinda wish I'd had the aptitude for something practical. This kind of degree teaches you useful techniques etc but most people look at it and go 'yeah whatever' Laughing


I spent four years studying History, I graduated my first year of Master in contemporary history, then left all this to go to the nurse school.
History studies are interesting but interesting studies arent enough to pay the bills.


I have a Master in Medieval history. If you want find a job that is closely related to your studies you're pretty much limited to teaching or doing research. Many of my friends are doing that now.
But there are other options. I know people working for the government, for the European union, logistics, research & development, or (like me) the energy sector.

The factual knowledge you gather during these studies is not exactly what employers are looking for, but I also found you develop a lot of competences that are useful in a professional environment.
If you've got the brains and are motivated you can land a decent job with any degree.

Wouldn't those beam transports technically kill you? Even if what comes out on the other side is an exact copy, the former you will be dead, won't it?

Well, develop and try out. That's the way of science. Else you wouldn't have X-rays, a car, an airplane, penicillin, ...

Well put.

But as you say - at least we had a good time. Don't regret anything.


That's it. No job opportunity but at least interesting years.

graphic designer in a computer store at the moment. but I want to be a butcher if I get the chance from one who seeks for an apprentice.



wouldnt recommend getting into the meat industry unless the pay rate is higher in europe than england, i was looking at moving to england last year and the hourly rate for a butcher is laughable compared to australia and even then its a joke over here compared to other trades (in comparison, my hourly wage is $27ph aud and a plumber/sparkie is $40-$50ph) hell even a forklift driver with a few extra tickets (hi reach + cold room) is about my hourly wage for a few 2-3 day courses instead of a 3 year apprenticeship

I see. in my area there's sort of a lack of butchers, so I'd like to learn. but in general is very very hard to get a job, even for who's already experienced. it's almost impossible even working as a forklift driver, noone takes employees anymore in any field of work...

I could be wrong but I don't think you have to do an apprenticeship in England to be a butcher you just have to get a job in a butcher shop and do a bit of training like you would do in most other jobs and that is probably why the wages are low. I worked in a butchers shop once I left the job after 4 hours I didn't like it all.

sounds like that probably is the case then, yeah it definitely isnt for everyone but beats working in the heat in summer and finishing work at 1pm every day makes it bearable (oh and butchers are usually notorious pissheads so lunchtime beers always go down a treat hehe)
