Focus: Career changers: The late show
I'm a mature postgrad who completed the GDL and LPC part-time whilst holding down a stressful job (all completely at my own expense). And, no, I didn't secure a TC whilst I was studying and I've come to realise how foolish that was as it's now proving difficult to even get a paralegal job, let alone a TC.
But as the article says, the application process does appear to be tailored to 20 somethings who have received A* grades from the day they were born and have had exciting GAP years of travelling around the world, giving them something interesting to talk about in their applications and at interview. I didn't. I raised a family and paid a mortgage for over a decade. Is that any good?
When I saw the title to this article, I thought it might offer me some encouragement to keep trying to make that leap into a career where I know I will be successful and will enjoy the work. So does it? Sure, so long as I'm a mature student who went to Oxbridge, became a headline DJ act or played rugby at international level. Great!
