I found I've had to take a completely unrelated job in order to get by, which really gets me down. I graduated in 2000 with a BA (Hons) in Literature, and really want to follow bibliography or archivism, but here in Britain, there are NO jobs. The jobs you can get are really low paid and I am loathe to spend 5 years of my life as a single parent at University, struggling hard to gain my degree, to get a bum job with minimum wage. It makes me question sometimes why I bothered in the first place
I keep going though. I know the right job will come along. I'm even planning to move abroad when my son has grown. So, you're not alone, things in Britain aren't much better.
Keep on keeping on. I firmly believe that strength and ability shines through in the end and what you deserve will be yours.
