What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

You don't have to be an accountant if you take this degree, but over half of graduates take a look at the rewards on offer for accountancy trainees and go into the job. Many others go into other parts of the finance industry as advisors or book-keepers, and some go into management or marketing. London is very popular for accountancy graduates going into their first job, but it's also quite common to work in Scotland, with Glasgow a perennial hotbed of Scottish accountancy recruitment. If you want to find a job in finance as an accountancy graduates, recruitment agencies were particularly important last year, so try to get in touch with one as soon as you can to improve your chances.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from French courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. About one in five working graduates from 2015 got jobs overseas — often as English teachers — which is much higher than for most subjects. Those who want to stay at home to work find jobs in education, and anywhere where good communication skills are a must. That means you can find French graduates in education, in marketing, in the arts and in business and finance as teachers, writers, personnel officers, financial advisors, analysts, sales people and marketers. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
