Cry for help from a trainee

Page 2 of 2

Does anybody know of a fund for impoverished journalists, respectable way of supplementing my income, or have any other ideas?

I know I’m not that low paid and should be relatively well off for a trainee but not being a graduate life is that bit more difficult.

It would be interesting to know how a graduate trainee copes with similar debts and things like buying a car, finding a flat deposit and being able to afford a drink with friends.

I have finally made the bank be sympathetic: it has taken a year but they don’t really seem to understand how the job and training work.
