More evidence that a degree is not enough

Posted on

Two new universities have topped what is essentially the ’employability league table’ – RGU (Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen) and Edinburgh Napier – with only 2.1% & 3.2% respectively of last year’s graduates out of work six months after qualifying – “Employability is not a dirty word here,” says Jenny Rees, Napier’s vice-principal for customer services – whereas the more traditional Universities  have suffered. The UK average of  5.8% being  unemployed 6 months after leaving University in 2007 has risen to 8.4% in 2008. 

Skills matter, broad experience makes a difference and knowing how to sell yourself counts!

Just look at what this graduate did!
