Students looking for their first job need more than just labour market information; they also need to understand how the graduate labour market operates.
In order to illustrate the complexity of the graduate labour market we invited 100 graduate employees to describe how they ended up in their current roles. If you're interested in reading about their experiences we recently published a booklet detailing the edited highlights of some of their stories on the HECSU website.
Looking for your first job can be frustrating at the best of times; when jobs are scarce it can be downright depressing. We hope that helping graduates to see that there is more than one route into employment will give them the confidence they need to keep going when they're looking for their own way into their chosen career.
