Graduates are turning to the hospitality, tourism and sport industry for work according to a new report. Graduate Prospects say interest in these areas has increased by 180 per cent since last year.
Mike Hill, chief executive at Graduate Prospects said: “The experts at university careers services have been advising students and recent graduates to widen their net for some years, and now that advice is being acted upon.
“Graduates recognise that the service industry is one sector that is faring well in the present climate and are therefore considering it as an area where there may be more vacancies and opportunities
“People graduating with highly vocational degrees in markets that are not quite so buoyant will be particularly focused on exploring alternatives - looking for jobs that don’t require specific qualifications.
“The hospitality, tourism and sport industry is a good example, offering many roles that are open to a wide range of graduates despite their qualifications.”
Marketing, advertising and PR have also seen increased interest from graduates as have health and social care.
The trend seems to suggest that graduates are keen to keep their career options open.
Graduate Prospects provides information and advice to students and graduates.
