Some of the more common problems faced by students and graduates are outlined below with advice on what you can do in each situation. Further frequently asked questions related to each chapter in this guide can be found on the companion website. Self reflection like this can be very challenging, but you should persevere because it usually the best way to get back on track. You may also want to discuss the issues involved with a careers adviser from your current or former university careers centre (or your local university) - just give them a call. The number of graduates has increased tenfold since the early 1960s but so has the number of graduate jobs. Therefore, there are still plenty of opportunities. The recession has recently slowed things down but not appreciably. However, the route into graduate careers has changed markedly. A far smaller percentage of students go directly into traditional graduate training programmes and graduates often have to tread long and circuitous paths to get to their career destinations.
