    When I was in College I worked at a local Tesco, although that only lasted for about 9 months before I quit - my hours were destroying my health (5:30am to 2pm, standing on tills all morning) and I was lazy/immature, so it didn't really sit well with me.

    I managed to land myself a job working in my University as an Administrator last month, which is quite nice. The contract is only for six months right now, although there is the possibility of it becoming permanent. I work in admissions, so I deal with student applications, which is more interesting than it sounds. The hours aren't too bad (8:30 - 5:15, 4:15 on Friday) and the environment is quite relaxed, so it's quite enjoyable, although it drags something awful when there isn't any work to do.

    To be honest, I'm not sure about where I'll be going from here. I'd like a job as a Business Analyst, or to get into a graduate scheme with that in mind as the end goal, but I'll plan for that after my contract expires if it doesn't become permanent. If it does I'll take it and do a PGCE part time so I can pursue a career in teaching in the future. I like to keep my options open.
