“From day one students should see the start of university as the start of their working life” according to Dan Hawes, co-founder of the Graduate Recruitment Bureau.
The recent annual Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey confirmed that graduates who left university last summer entered a rather better jobs market than their peers from the year before.
Now that people are no longer expected to have a 40 or 50 year career with the same employer there is the potential to move into higher level positions at a much younger age. So how can you demonstrate that you have the potential to be a leader if you are fresh out of university?
More graduates are turning to new smaller companies rather than the traditional graduate scheme.
A leadership career in the university sector may not be something you've thought of before. However, for ambitious and talented graduates, it should be a very significant and appealing prospect.
Congratulations on obtaining your degree from a UK Top Ten University.
On 20th June, two hundred and twenty students received the Lancaster Award at a ceremony attended by friends and family in Barker House Farm.
Research by the Association of Graduate Recruiters finds that many employers are failing to fill graduate-level jobs despite a surge in the number of university leavers.
Lancaster University is very excited to be launching this new two-year MSc International Innovation programme for October 2014 entry.
