Article: The ‘graduate job’ gravy train is shuddering to a halt

An interesting article that turns the entire employability and “graduate premium” concept on its head.

“There is already alarming anecdotal evidence that the increase in ‘graduate’ jobs is failing to keep pace. Lots of graduates end up in the Uber economy. In any case, the ‘graduate premium’ has always been uneven – high for Oxbridge graduates heading for the City, wafer-thin for those from less prestigious universities working in the public sector (especially if they are women or from ethnic minorities).” (Emphasis, mine)
