ransos - There was absolutely no point you going to uni then, was there?
It's not unreasonable that a graduate would wish to work in a field at least tangentially related to their studies - that is after all, kind of the point of it.
Another flaw in our system, please decide what you would like to do for the rest of your life at 17/18 and the spend the rest of your life paying for it. Might as well re-open the pits and foundries and take 'em from the cradle to the grave rather than messing about filling their heads with ideas and charging 'em for the privilige.
I can hear the conversations in Surbiton now, "My father went to university and worked all his life as a management consultant and it paid for me to go to University,I've been a management consultant since graduation and it paid for your prep school and tutor, now you can do the same. I'll hear no more of this airy fairy carpentry nonsense under my roof and that's final!"
