“Who wants a job anyway?” – Student Approaches to Graduate Employability

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The higher education sector, both in the UK and globally, has expanded significantly in recent years. This growth has been accompanied by rising fees, meaning education is increasingly being viewed as a personal investment of both time and money with expectations of a better job and salary as a consequence (Brynin, 2013). Emphasis has therefore been placed upon the role of universities in producing employable graduates; however, employability is subjective and depends upon an individual student’s circumstances. This chapter explores student approaches to employability recognising a number of personal factors that can impact upon graduate outcomes
