Life After College: Graduate Employment in 2015

Many college students would have just graduated this summer. This means a fresh pool of talent has just been released into the working world and recruiters need to be aware of the skills and value that graduates posses.

However, as much as companies have the ability to attract this new talent, they struggle to find ways to keep graduates interested. This then encourages job hopping, as graduates become easily bored and disinterested.

So what are graduates doing after college and how can companies keep them engaged? College Living have a look at some interesting statistics.

  1. Over 60% of 2014 graduates were encouraged to pursue a science, technology, engineering or maths degree.
