Uni is over... what next?

I am at that disheartening stage in life where I have finished my English degree, and yet I'm still unsure as to what I want to do with my life. I am made to feel like a failure, whether intentional or not, when people constantly ask me, 'so, what are you going to do with your English degree?' - Pure and simple, I have no straight answer for them. Statistics suggest that, on average, people change their careers 5 to 7 times during their lifetime; so it always baffles me when people my age and younger are made to feel like they should know exactly what kind of profession they want to pursue. Saying that, now that I am no longer tied down to looming deadlines and revising for exams I have had a careers meeting, which has opened my eyes to the world of It provides graduates with an insane amount of information, whether you know what you want to do or not. I certainly have a lot of reading to get through over the next few days, if not week. I just wish I'd of known about this site sooner!

I'll let you know how my career search pans out, but until then wish me luck.
