Careers advice anyone?
I'm really depressed at the moment. I graduated about 10 months ago with a science degree, and didn't go straight into paid employment, but messed about with my band and gigged and stuff... and now I'm in the position where I don't know what to do. I left my band (I've been with them for a very long time), and they were meant to be my future plan. Since leaving them, I've felt very low, and in emotional turmoil. I do work, but it's not enough, I'm trying to get work in the creative arts but it's very hard, especially when you're not "in the know". Many of my friends are working musicians/media, and the contacts theyve given me have come to no fruition, I'm doing my best and scouring the paper and adverts every day for jobs that I would be interested in.. to no avail. Obviously I'm missing something, or I'd be where I want to be, but I can't find the piece to fit.
Has anyone been in this situation before? Have any advice to give? I'm at the end of my tether here.
