Graduate schemes have become increasingly popular in recent years, with more and more employers providing such opportunities to graduates wanting to kick-start their career. Indeed, the prospect of a stable, well-paid job, particularly in the current economic climate, is undoubtedly very attractive to recent graduates. Yet while such programmes seem to be custom-made for some, they might not fit others so well.
The Guardian featured an interesting article about the appeal of graduate schemes, despite the huge number of other options available. While it’s important to have a clear focus or strategy when choosing a career, don’t limit yourself to one type of career progression, but instead explore as many options as possible to discover which ones suit you best.
