To put it simply, graduate jobs or ‘grad jobs’ are jobs that require a university degree. Unlike entry-level jobs, they are only open to candidates who have studied at university. This is because they require a certain level of expertise, experience or education. A fairly broad term, graduate jobs are available in nearly every industry. While some career paths like law, medicine and architecture have always required university degrees, more and more industries now offer exciting graduate opportunities. Though they weren’t always considered grad jobs, it’s now common for teachers, accountants and journalists to require a degree before they start work. Graduate positions are also becoming increasingly flexible in terms of recruitment. While some degrees like property management and cloud computing lend themselves to specific jobs, many graduate opportunities are open to all graduates. So even if you studied English, you could be eligible for a graduate job in accountancy, human resources or even retail banking. Unlike graduate schemes, you can apply to grad jobs throughout the year, making your job search more open and flexible. While they may be harder to find, graduate jobs are perfect for uni leavers who aren’t looking to tie themselves into long-term training.
