I work as a lecturer in an SLDD (Students with learning difficulties and disabilities) department, i did my A'Levels, turned down Uni to work and live in a pub (god only knows why), then got sick of that, went to work for Morrisons as a baker, after about 3 years i was going crazy so i went to work for the college as a learning support assistant, then did a teaching course and got offered some hours, each year i've gradually got more and now i teach full time. Bit of an odd career path, and i do enjoy it, but i don't want to do it forever.

At what point are you?

I'm a manager within Jobcentre Plus.
I absolutely loathe my current job, but like working for Jobcentre Plus generally.
I started off working in a call centre and worked my way up from there.
I think the pay is excellent, a lot of my colleagues would disagree.

I left school went to college to learn to a a graphic designer, got bored :-(
I then went on to college to learn Business and Finance :-(
Came out with a degree, and started in a menial office job, got made redundant, then started up my own roofing contracting business. I got home sick came home and started as a sales office chimp. I worked my way up to a manager at the Head office, company car, expense account, pension, health benefits £30k per year. Got pushed out on a trumped up charge, took em to court and won, used the cash to pass my HGV.

Love being a driver more than any other job I've ever had. It doesn't really push me mentally, but the benefits are great. £30k per year :thumbsup:

I will be advising my boys that if they want to go to uni to do so, but I wont be forcing them :-D

Stay at home mum/hpusewife. Pays pants. Hours are from midnight to midnight.you take your work home with you, to the pub with you etc, as always on call. but the perks are the best you'll find in ay job. and potentially doing the most important job in the world. Raising a better generation of polite, well mannered, hard working, caring, toddler, child, youth and eventually adult. :)

Left school and done a 4 year apprentiship as a pipe fitter welder, done this up until 92 when I was made redundent no jobs going around at the time for that trade so went on to learn how to drive a bus and to this day still drive buses.
Not a badly paid job but you do get some awful passengers sometimes who moan at you for being 2 minutes late...some people.

Im in the final year of my law degree. I wanted to be a barrister oridinally, but after having done some research it seems its probably not possible financially and its also a huge financial gamble apparently as there is no gaurantee that you will end up practising as a lawyer even after spending tens of thousands of pounds training as one. So now Im thinking maybe the police, but Im also very confused :-(

Before that I was a hairdresser for 3 years.

Any top job will be taken :lol: you might want to try starting at the bottom and working your way up. A degree will certainly help. You'll need to wait for people to move on/die/retire good luck though.
