I'm not holding my breath. Poor attitude I know, but it just seems like I've maybe aimed the wrong way with my choice of master's degree. Any company in the sustainable development sector seems to be looking for housing surveyors (who have completed expensive courses offered only in England), engineers to maintain wind turbines or plumbers to install solar water heaters. Any consultancy work on offer requires 3-5 years of industrial experience. NONE OF THESE EMPLOYERS ARE LOOKING FOR MASTER'S DEGREES ANYMORE! Have a just wasted my time and money doing my postgraduate course??
P.S. Sorry that some of the table is off the page. I'm working on getting it fixed...
