For current students or recent graduates, the graduate job market can seem very challenging. Employment opportunities have been hit by the world recession whilst employers expect as much, if not more, from graduates today than they did ten or fifteen years ago.
This website features graduates from 2011 and 2012 reflecting on their university experience – their courses, their activities and their career choices – and how these have affected their transition into employment. They are ordinary graduates – just like you. Many of them have taken advantage of their opportunities, whilst some have regrets about those they have missed.
All have a story to tell that is unique to them and that they are happy to share. Read or listen to these and learn from them in the context of your own situation. We have themed the stories and clips to make them easier to follow and we hope that these will interest, motivate and inspire you.
