After Graduating

125 posts in this topic

Just out of curiosity those who graduated from university, what did you do when you finished

Did you get a Job which correlates with you degree, Work experience or did you go back to retail, call centres etc

Did anyone go on to do a gap year, did you move back in with parents

Was it a financial struggle?

I'm probably gunna get a dead job until I find my feet / realise what kind of career I want.

Applied to a couple places for unpaid work and I'll see how that turns out.

Graduated. Currently on a grad scheme in what I studied. Passively considering a move at the moment. But in reality will probs stick it out.

Had a job before I actually graduated because of the buoyancy of my sector. I moved back in with parents for 2 years and I've been in sh*t private rented for the last two.

What did everyone study at uni? Where are you based since graduating?

I did Software Engineering at uni and took a job in Oxford. Still work there now. Used to commute from my parents yard in Ealing everyday but live nearer work now

Had been kicked out so was staying elsewhere. Took 2 months to get an admin job part time. After a month became full time. Not trying to get a job in what I studied at all. Grad schemes have been here and there. Had a real bad experience with one but would still contemplate doing them.

depends on the area you are trying to get into brah... Eg. Support, development, administration. In my sector (microsoft development) there is a shortage of skills. Which direction are you thinking of heading in?

I thought i would just walk into a shitty job after i graduated while i was deciding what i really wanted to, but it was a real struggle, the competition for shitty jobs is ridiculous....

so i started freelancing to build my portfolio and did a lengthy piece of work experience in my field which gave me a little change, and developed my skills & cv so now im working at entry level in what a graduated in, will probably look to move on for more p or a more developing role at the end of the year tho... its all about building technical skills and knowledge of the industry for me at the moment.

for you Web / IT Dons, teach yourself SEO... i came across so many vacancies that wanted SEO knowledge + one of my friends who does IT recruitment said she struggles to fill the SEO roles because there is such a high demand for it ATM but very few people who are experts in it.
