Frustrated ambition

October 17, 2003

I have a masters degree in Middle East Studies and am working towards a PhD in the area of Islamic studies. So when I saw the headline in your October 10 issue, "Employability: Middle East studies does the job", I was excited enough to buy the paper. What, after all, is £1.40 for someone with my glittering career prospects? Imagine my disappointment to find that the article to which this headline referred made no mention of Middle East studies. When I managed to find it in the rather poorly presented accompanying tables, it seemed to rank rather low in the employability league.
