As a graduate you have a wealth of career opportunities. You can go into roles linked to your studies and employment experience or try something completely new. However, many students and graduates are daunted by this choice and just dont know how to start. This chapter helps you resolve this dilemma by showing you how to systematically research all your choices and fi nd a fulfi lling role. About two-thirds of new graduates go straight into full-time work, many others go travelling, take up some sort of postgraduate study or just take some time out from all the hassle. They go into a massive range of careers and find work in every part of the country, but over 60 per cent of vacancies with larger employers are based in the South East. Some new graduates on training programmes take home over 30,000 but many will only earn about 15,000 for the first few years after leaving university (but afterwards their salaries tend to rise quicker than those without degrees).
