Which Industries are most likely to demand a 2.1 or better?

Thanks to my colleague Rachel Taylor who spotted this interesting news story about which industries demand a 2:1 – Rebecca

This is a question we get asked a lot here in the Careers Service, if you don’t get a 2.1 or higher what impact does that have on your job search?

This interesting article came into my inbox recently and explores which industries are more likely to be demanding that 2.1. For those of you interested in Publishing, Law and Accounting they appear to be the toughest, but it’s not impossible. Essentially the key message from the article is that making connections, being proactive and thinking carefully about the kinds of positions you are applying to will all enhance your chances of success!

Remember you can use the Careers Service for two years after graduation so get in touch if you would like some support in your job search #EdGrad15.
