I am starting to job hunt and I am really stuck so any help would be welcome.
I am 24 and since I was 18 I have been in full time education, I have an english degree and have nearly finished a nursing degree which is on hold for a while (not sure how long?).
I have only ever really worked minimum wage type jobs, I have been a nanny, and a care assistant in a residential home and in hospitals. I don't want loads of money but I am wanting to earn £6+ an hour.
I really really don't want to do shop work (if i want to work pants hours for not amazing money I will do residential care work)
I can type really fast but i don't have any officy qualifications but I am obviously pretty literate due to english degree. I have seen some admin type jobs advertised for my local NHS trust so was wondering about those?
I also obviously have a huge CV gap due to my nursing course - how do I explain that being uncompleted?? I feel very unemployable at the moment really.
I'm so sorry. I didn't finish my nursing course either, I'm on a radiography one now and appear to be working my way around the NHS!
Apply for any job you can. The admin one would be good or maybe a legal secretary for personal injury as you have medical knowledge? Or a PGCE? I know that it's not ideal but they offer bursaries for english graduates to do these.
I'm so sorry it has not worked out for you. It's just a stage though, it'll get better. Your life's just taking you into another direction at the moment.
see it as a chance to sort things out rather than something negative. I'm so pleased I took time off my course, I was so worried at the time because I had ds to care for and bills to pay but I got through. Another door will open when you least expect it. What about nannying? Have they not said when you can go back?
I like the idea of nannying but I live in E.yorks and have just got married and so I need to be live-out and I have no childcare qualifications so would have to be an au-pair which is bad money wise. Hmm. Prob not lots of opportunities in the area!!
Have applied for a couple of admin jobs and will get the job paper on wednesday.
Its complicated about when I can go back so v.up in the air.
