I have a degree in animal behaviour and welfare and I can’t even land a basic animal care job

When I was sixteen years old, I passed my GCSE’s and went on to Sixth Form where I studied my A Levels. Though I fairly fluffed them, I still got into University on a Foundation Degree for Forensic Chemistry and Pathology. Sadly, the course I was moving on to was undersubscribed and cancelled. I dropped out of university and entered the job market.
I got a job with Delta Force Paintball as a Marshall, a hard job that meant I got to the site for 6.30 am to help get the site setup. Then, we ran the game sessions, and eventually cleaned everything up at the end of the day to then store it all away. It was hard work for a flat £40 a day. Ideally we would start at 6.30 and finish by 2.00. Some days we didn’t leave til gone 7.00pm, all for the same flat £40.
