I already have a degree and are looking for a career change, can I still apply?
Posted: 20/05/17 by Thomas Kiely
I graduated university in 2016 with a 2:1 in Criminology, however since graduating and beginning employment I do not believe my skills are best placed in this career path and have taken a massive interest into becoming a quantity surveyor. What are my best options?
You should be open to change throughout your life - nothing stands still and if you do not change; you could get left behind.
Your degree demonstrates a very high level of learning and independence - graduate qualities that any employer would want.
Create a CV in skill sections - research the qualities of a quantity surveyor- sites like https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk/job-profiles/quantity-surveyor and demonstrate how you have those skills from your degree and ALL your working background.
As of May 2017 an employer may get funding for an apprenticeship for you - don't let that aspect put you off.

This could be the case, but if you can email your cv and the link to the position you are applying to, we can forward this to the employer to explain this. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
