What Graduates Should Know About Employment After Graduation



When seeking employment as a candidate your main focus should be your net pay salary after your deductions.

Don’t Compare… Too Much

Different sectors, different organisational structures and protected characteristics means that your career path will be different to your friends and others.

You should use salary benchmarking tools to ensure you are being paid job market value and not being discriminated against due to a protected characteristic.

Toxic Work Environments

Many individuals try to ignore or downplay a beyond repair relationship with their manager or colleagues which leads to an uncomfortable working environment and impacts your mental health.

A toxic work environment can affect your wellbeing outside of work. Your wellbeing should always come first.

Employment Rights

You only have some employment rights until two years of continuous service.

Although your employment rights start at the beginning of your start date until your qualifying period of two years consecutive years is completed you will then have full employment rights and a right to written reasons if you dismissed.

Recruitment Has Changed

You need resilience and persistence to not give up until your goal is accomplished. This may mean having to deal with rejection but through reflection.

    We definitely all had to learn the hard way which could be avoidable with informing each other about expectations early on.

    Before graduating, I really wish I had been taught more about freelancing. I did a journalism degree and exactly none of it focused on what happens once you’ve got your really expensive piece of paper and try to get paid for being a writer!
