Graduate Jobs Overview

Every July, recent graduates celebrate leaving uni and prepare to apply for their first full-time positions. The good news is that, according to Luminate, the majority of U.K. university graduates were employed within 15 months after receiving their diplomas. Graduate jobs are out there – you just have to start looking.

In your first entry-level job, you can expect to be assigned a variety of miscellaneous tasks while you learn about your position, the company, and the industry. While most managers have evolved from asking their assistants to bring them coffee, you may be asked to assist with projects, set up meetings, take notes, and provide administrative help.

Many jobs are expressly for recent graduates just entering the job market. To start your job search, take a look at these categories:

Graduate Job Education and Skills

You'll read job postings to see how your education and skills match the requirements for the position. Every job will be slightly different. Along with the knowledge you've acquired during uni and any internships, part-time jobs, or extracurriculars, employers also want to see the following skills in recent graduates, regardless of the profession:

  • The ability to work in a team.
  • Critical thinking.
  • Attention to detail.
  • A strong work ethic.
  • The ability to work remotely.

How Much Do Graduate Jobs Pay?

Entry-level salaries can be a mystery. Allthough the median graduate salary is £29,000, there isn't one magic number for all graduates. The best thing you can do is know what the median salaries are for the graduate jobs you pursue. When you've found a potential job, you can look up salaries and other important facts at the National Careers Service.
