Well, just after I completed the CPL/ME training I tried to apply to McDonalds. They rejected my application as being overqualified.
Still a wee bit embarassed to have recieved a PFO from McDonalds though...
BlueBaron, if you have some form of previous career, maybe you could investigate getting some work on a short term contract basis. Generally the money is not too bad, and it allows you a certain amount of flexibility should the market pick up and you need to start your type rating course next Monday.
