Tess is a law graduate, who says, “I’ve sat in a pretty unfulfilling admin job for a couple of years, plugging away, earning money, distracted from harnessing my full potential. I lost my job a few weeks ago, so trips to the job centre have become a regular thing. I tell the job center lady I’d like to spread my wings, and find a good job in London, something entry-level in the media. She says ‘You should really focus your efforts on getting an admin job around here instead.’ I’m a bit crushed. Maybe they’re quite happy for the 20 grand of public money spent on my degree to go towards photocopying and making cups of tea in an anonymous office somewhere.”
