Jobs with your degree
While your degree may lead you in a particular direction, be aware that there are other paths open to you as well. Careers advisers estimate that about 40 per cent of vacancies advertised for graduates do not ask for specific degree subjects. In fact, many employers will be more interested in your personal skills and abilities than your degree discipline.
So, if your degree is not in an obviously vocational subject, or if you want a change, don't worry. Most graduates will find that their studies have given them a set of 'transferable skills' that can be used in a variety of careers – including many that may not be directly connected to their degree subject at all.
Choose your area of study from the menu to find a list of suggested jobs relevant to your subject. There may also be other jobs open to you, not listed here, that do not require a specific degree background.
