Thanks for the replies.
Ange: I think if I was to look for a job straight after I graduate it would be the sort of role you described, but I'm not sure if there is much of this sort of work available for someone who doesn't have an actual PR qualification.
Bel Rowley: I have seen your posts regarding study and internships before.
Best of luck with your graduation! I agree that making contacts is crucial. I'm in a difficult position because I can't work (in a paid or unpaid role) until my son starts school, which obviously limits my ability to network. I appreciate your input, though, and I agree with much of what you have said. I also hope the job search proves fruitful for you soon!
little bird: that is a good suggestion, and one I will look into. Marketing is not something that interests me at all, but having had a quick search of Behavioural Studies degrees it seems there is a variety of specialisations available to undertake.
Thanks to those who commented about working in academia. I agree that it is not a reliable or secure career path -- otherwise it would be the one I'd be following -- but it's helpful to hear from those who have more practical experience than I do (ie. absolutely none lol).
I had considered a graduate entry law degree. Does anyone have any comment about this option? And whether or not it would be a good match for my journalism degree?
Thanks, again, to all those who have replied. I'm feeling a bit lost as to what the next few years will hold for me, and it's good to get some new/different perspectives.
