Chris, a marketing assistant at Solutions Bookkeeping, advises on why going to University isn't always the best idea: "I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, so I went to University to study music, then changed my mind and studied geography. I then wound up with no degree, no job and two years of my life wasted. After this, I decided I needed a plan, I went out and developed as many business contacts as I could before finding an Apprenticeship position. I am currently going to college part-time and working the rest of my time with a clear goal in sight! I guess my advice is, make sure you know what you want before you try to get it."
