Careers bookOne in five young people has given up hope of finding a job in their chosen career, with many more expecting to wait 10 years to land their dream job, according to research.
A survey of 1,000 people aged between 18 and 28 found that almost two out of five feared they would never find a job in their preferred industry.
One in four of those questioned by Amigo Loans said they had taken a job in another industry because they were desperate for an income.

James Benamor, chief executive of Amigo Loans, said: "There are too many talented business people struggling to get by in the first job they can get."
