The Work Issue, Part One

We wanted to know what students want out of a graduate job. So, we asked them.

We partnered with the Institute of Student Employers (ISE) and together we conducted seven focus groups of students across the UK.

With these students, we discussed everything from what they care about most in a job (spoiler: it’s getting paid) to how they think their first graduate job will affect their mental health. This is what they had to say.


Time to talk?

We’ll be discussing the themes explored in chapter threein an upcoming event, Time to Talk? The event looks at what graduate employers can do to better support their applicants and employee’s mental health and wellbeing. To register for a ticket drop an email. The event is a breakfast on 20th of November in central London.
