When I graduated from university, there was a program for job placement. It did not take me long to get a job in the field that I had studied for. I thought that I was going to work my way up that so called ladder, but after three years I was still at an entry level position with no hope of getting promoted anytime soon. I was not happy with that, and that is why I decided to look at a financial services recruitment agency in Bristol to see if there were any jobs in my field where I would be able to not be so stagnant.
