Sucks that that uni place is so unhelpful, especially since you've not even graduated. It's not like you are holding on to a plan even after proof that it isn't working out. (And even then not listening to objections that their plan isn't going to work is not a good way to help.)

Well, to be fair to them, they were helpful. They made my CV more readable, helped me select a picture where I don't look like a complete spazz, gave me tips on (body) language, and made me realise a couple of things that I'm often too dense to notice in time while talking to people. But that's just about the crux of it: I'd be a terrible civil servant in just about every regard imaginable, and it shouldn't take more than an hour to ascertain that. They had twelve.
