Studying CIMA with no job?

I am due to finish level 4 in June this year all going well, and am thinking about my next step. I had been looking at going onto CIMA, but as I not currently within a relevant job would I be wasting my time?

I work part time doing admin and book keeping for a local business. The competition for an CIMA relevant jobs is fierce and as I do not have the bare minimum experience for most agencies I'm being to feel a little lost with where I am going with all this study

    He who dare's, wins.

    If you never make the jump and go for the qualification you'll never have a chance to use it.

    I know, just wallowing today. I know I need to make the jump, start applying for new jobs and keep at it. I know I will get there in the end

    It might pay to get the job first. It's very difficult if you end up over qualified, but without the proper experience.

    Without meaning to sound negative, but it is a difficult decision, so do think hard before you decide either way!
