  • 93% of business leaders want to see work experience made a mandatory part of the curriculum – which speaks volumes about the importance of a strong CV with work experience.
  • Look for tailor-made graduate employment opportunities – as many as 30,000 are advertised every month.
  • Be open to different opportunities. Research shows the average person will change jobs a total of 12 times across their career, working at each company for approximately 4.3 years.
