When your growing up you are always told that education is the most important thing you need to do. For the most part they are right you can’t go any where these days with out an education. However where is the best place to stop?
The reason I ask this is because I went all the way through to University and got a Bachelors degree in Business Information Technology and although I do not regret doing it as I met some amazing people and learnt a lot from the experience both academically and in the way of life.
That being said I have found that finding a job now is really quite difficult and yes it is because of the economic climate we are in there is no escaping that. However with that in mind I applied to jobs that have nothing to do with my degree and don’t really need high qualifications just find no success and for the only reason I could think of for that is because I am over qualified.
Looking back in the decisions I have made when it came to my education over the years. As I look back I see that maybe University seemed right to do but looking where friends are now and after the ones that left school after A Level or GCSE’s they seem to be in a better position then what the majority of people that went to University are. As I am slowly finding out is that you are considered over qualified for a job (at least that is what I hope it is).
