What do hospitality and tourism graduates do?

Well, people keep asking, and as hospitality, leisure, transport and tourism (or, as we data nerds like to call is, JACS code N8) is the largest subject not to appear in What Do Graduates Do?, here is the data, courtesy of my diligent colleague and the editor of WDGD, Jen Redman.

Outcomes for 2010/11 UK-domiciled graduates in hospitality, leisure and tourism six months after graduation
Types of work for 2010/11 UK-domiciled graduates in hospitality, leisure and tourism who were working in the UK six months after graduation

Fans of What do graduates do?, which is, of course, everyone, will notice we're using different job categories than usual in the figure above. That's because this year will see the adoption of the new Standard Occupational Classification, SOC 2010, as part of the changes to DLHE that came in this time around, and so we will be making substantial revisions to the publication in general and the types of work in particular. Let us know what you think.
