As with all programmes at all universities, some graduates have not gone into graduate level work. Recent roles have included: Call Centre Assistant and Sales Assistant.
There can be many reasons to explain this including saving for further study, getting relevant work experience, wanting to take some time-out, but often it is due to a lack of career planning prior to graduating. Reviewing these careers resources and taking advantage of opportunities will help to ensure that you fulfil your career potential.
