Qualifications don't mean anything in todays world.
I work for the Bank of England ( don't flame me till you hear the rest of my sad tale)
My work experience started when I left school in 87, had dire results all GCSE ( not even college grade)( english, maths, social studies, physics? and
technical drawing- no job helpful qualifications there), went to work in a high street electrical retailers for 2 years, did another ER 1 year, a
small firm 6 months, then worked in a bar for a year, then went to work for a reprographics firm in their bike messenger dept.
That business folded so I went to work as a bike courier for Cabinet office ( Government dept), they cancelled the contract BofE took me on, been here
13 years, went from Bike messenger to clerk, now all I do is process cheques and surf the net.
My qualifications didn't mean anything, just treat every job you have as a life experience, don't EVER get your hopes up about landing your dream
job, you'll 99 times out of 100 never get it.
To get ahead? My advice is not worry about qualifications you just need to seriously kiss some butt or like me be plain lucky to even have a job.
I don't even class this as my dream job, its a wage thats all.
