Whether you have a classy degree and a nice set of A levels, it’s important to know that you’re absolutely nothing to an industry without relevant work experience. The first job roles you can apply for are always going to be at the bottom of the pile, and in many ways when you come out of school or university, you have to prove yourself all over again.
That’s life, and you’ll certainly climb quickly if you use your skills and qualifications to develop further, but you should never fool yourself into thinking you’re going to start from the top. You have to gain respect in your industry, and prove you’re capable of reaching great heights, and like every individual, you do have to start from the bottom.
Breaking into some industries is really difficult, and you may even have to undertake unpaid work experience, so be prepared to start form the bottom in your dream industry.
