hmm...

problem is i dont know what to do tho

i tried to vary my subjects i took at school as to not cut down my options asmuch as if i focused on one specific thing

like in GCSE level, i did business studies, history, geography, ICT, electronics

aswell as the compulsery english, maths, science, pe, re

then for AS level i took physic's, and history, with General studies and FSMQ, only passing the latter two

i'm now at college
doing this Btec

and i did key skills in level 2 english

got a pass in that

its really annoying on application forms where it asks education and gives a tiny box, then previous employment, and gives a massive one...

cos i have to write really tiny for education, then do a big N/A for previous employment

problem with me is, i dont know what i want to do
i have no career in mind

i wanna try some things

....

I've stuck my self out in the horrible world of work over the summer to try to pay off my student account overdraft. Somewhat unsuccessfully but I think the experience has been worthwhile anyway.
Given that there are few places stupid enough to give me a job for 3 months before I go back, I hit up some agencies to try to get some kind of work. I didn't know what I wanted to do and really this has taught me exactly what I don't want to be doing for the rest of my life. I've had 3 different jobs, all in different bits of manufacturing industry so far. One making the insides of showers. The second making bubble bath. And the third, putting stuff in boxes which has probably been the best of the lot and I should be sticking with 'til I head back.
None of them have been that exciting, all reasonably satisfying though and at about £6 an hour pays well enough on a full time week. However I'd hate to be stuck in any similar job for longer than a few months. So really I guess even an awful job is good experience at the end of the day. I have no idea what i want to do when I graduate, but certainly working in a factory is a no no. Better I find out now than in 3 years anyway. I hope this will help me study harder and be a better student and all that. Which it really should...

Best of luck anyway mate. Keep up the college whatever, its better to have a qualification of some kind rather than reflecting on a year you've ended up wasting. Applying for any jobs, I'd try to make up for a lack of experience by showing a real willingness to learn and show how the skills that you do have can be adapted to meet any challenges that you'll face.

Ionicle, do you know I had very similar thoughts to you a few years back.

I was at school doing my A-Levels and was going through some traumatic times (Saw a pedestrian get hit by a motorcycle at 60mph...) couldn't concentrate at school and hated it. I stuck with it and managed to get some pretty reasonable A Levels, nothing to shout about but they're there.

I worked in Domino's Pizza for about a year and a half (So, pretty similar to McDonalds then!) before getting into retail, into a temping job in BT doing data administration, before being offered an opportunity to prove myself by my manager (Work hard, get rewarded with opportunity to work harder).

This involved relocating an entire office of 45 people from London to Bradford, the logistics of moving the PC's, hiring new staff and training them, hiring two managers and training them and ensuring that a pipeline of work was cleared prior to launch day. I worked hard, succeeded and it gave me confidence to try something new.

I got into recruitment, working 12-15 hour days more often than not 7 days a week, getting paid for the standard 40 hours.....recruitment is hard sales, so pretty much the more you put in the more you get out.

Then I did a complete flip about and landed myself my current job working in the IT industry.

It's like those adverts on TV, Impossible is Nothing (Adidas??). I also knew very little about PC's and I still have a lot to learn, but if you're willing to work hard and listen to people you can get where you want to be and I'm sure people here will be happy to help in any way they can with advice. :)

Cor, my longest post ever. xD

Hey, who really knows what they want to do? Why not try lots of different things...remember though you have to learn to walk before you can run. Or should I say, you have to do crap jobs to get to the good ones. :P

Get your education, it's what another couple of years at most? Work McDonalds part time and then see what happens. No reason to rush! :)

Im on that same course as you, some parts were hard but i refused to settle for less than my best

I dno what im going to do later on, and like you i adore the hardware aspect. think of it this way...average it jobs go from say 20,000 to 55,000 £ a year...thats average

you can go up to £80,000 a year if you persevere and the top jobs are over 100,000 a year :eek:

if you have ur mind set on hardware, why not a local repair service/store? heck i even kinda started my own due to the lack of shops around here

ive been thinking the same, im working at wetherspoons over the summer to make some money for uni, and i just wonder how the hell some of the people do it as their only full time career job. its a great stop gap job for sure, but a career? you have to wonder why some of these people have no ambition.

ionicle, you can go furtehr than maccy d's lol, but make sure you do your education because at some point in your life you will ocne again be between jobs, and any qualifications you have will help you when applying for the new job, even if it isnt IT relatd.

it involves more cleaning than anything, and by god does it ache when you get in at 2, 3, or even somtiems 4am, after 4 hours of sollid mopping, or cleaning, or scrubbing, ajaxing, just cleaning in general, it really mucks your muscles up, i swear i've lost like neerly two stone, and gained a stone in muscle...

so all those people who laugh at me when i say i work at mcdonalds...

hmm

they should try it, if they cba doing out they'd be out of there quicker than.......yeah...
