Learning more about the job market

The graduate job market has evolved considerably over the past 40-50 years and continues to change in response to new technologies and increasing globalisation.

Significant expansion in higher education over this period has also greatly increased the supply of new graduates seeking work.

These developments have all affected the nature of graduate work, the attitudes of the current generation of graduates to employment and employers’ attitudes to graduates.
