Do graduates use the skills and knowledge gained from their degrees?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In policy discussion skills are portrayed as being important for dealing with changes in the labour market. There is significant uncertainty concerning the extent to which graduates actually use the skills gained in higher education (HE) as part of their jobs. In popular wisdom some degrees do not give knowledge that can be applied in the labour market while others give useful, practical skills. In this article, PhD student Daria Luchinskaya shows how some graduates from the Futuretrack survey are using their skills and knowledge in their jobs after having graduated in the midst of a recession.
