Many thanks to everyone, guests and speakers, for a highly successful seminar. Representatives from a wide range of organisations and professions – university academics, careers advisors, government officials, and researchers – gathered together, united by their interest in what's happening to graduate employment. So, in a context of higher education expansion, an increase in the supply of graduates, and a steady increase in graduates employed in ‘non-graduate’ jobs, what do we have to say about what makes a ‘graduate job’?
