It’s March already, and for a lot of students that means that their undergraduate degree is coming to an end. But what to do with that degree once you’ve earned it? Everybody knows a degree counts for virtually nothing in this economic climate, so here are nine uses for that incredibly expensive bit of paper:
- A classy napkin.
- Somewhere to write a screenplay on the back of. You know, that one you had planned about zombies at a ski resort. Gotta put that Film and English degree to some use.
- Toilet paper. You can pretend it’s a metaphor for your job prospects if you like.
- Credentials to show strangers before you psychoanalyse them in Starbucks for spare change.
- A makeshift paper aeroplane to throw in every passing office window.
- A template for ransom notes. Kidnapping is a noble profession with flexible job hours.
- Kitchen roll. Studies show there is no difference in absorption between a 2:2 and a 2:1.
- Combine with a hundred or so other graduates and use your degrees to create a papier-mâché fort of broken dreams.
- Use the other side of the page to forge an MA in Delaying Reality.
