Graduates doing menial jobs

Higher education statistics in UK recently reported that more than 50,000 graduates are now doing menial jobs, like waitresses, supermarket shelves fillers and other jobs that do not actually require that much education.

This is a worrying situation, not only for graduates and their families, but to everyone of us here in UK. These graduates in menial jobs took the jobs to avoid unemployment and try to do their little part for their families after huge student loans to repay. It is unfortunate that higher education and employment market do not seem to match. Even in high skill courses like computer studies, the rate of unemployment is still high.

More than a third of 18 – 35 year old who went to university say they regret it due to debt. Just under half believe they would have got their current job without a degree, says a study by AVIVA.

‘Debts for life’ – Undergraduates from poor families will be set up with a lifetime of debt after the replacement of grants with loans took effect on Ist August 2016, critics warned.

Some undergraduates who previously qualified for £3,500 will be put off going to university now that they have to repay the money, said the National Union of Students. ‘It’s a disgraceful change that punishes students simply for being poor’ said NUS vice president Soriana Vieru.

  1. This is disheartening to read of such huge rate of graduate unemployment. It is therefore realistic for individual to start thinking of being self employed. I like most of your posts, you are very realistic about current issues, and that is one way of solving problems.

    1. Thank you Sandra, yes you are right it is unfortunate to come out of University with debt, and not being able to find work. A top Minister in UK Parliament has indicated that business education should be implemented in all curriculum to prepare self employment. Also I believe the mindset of most graduates have to shift from being an employee to self employed. Thank you for visiting our website.

  2. The one thing I hate most is wasting time and energy. It is so disheartening to know so many students have given so much of their time and energy, without a just reward.
    The online opportunity you are sharing seems to offer a glimmer of hope. The same diligence they used for school can be applied to create their own business and a lifestyle they desire.
    I am not a student, but I am checking it out. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Many thanks Andrea. You are right, studies in colleges should include business studies to allow these sort of skill development in early age. It is a pity that most colleges curriculum do not include such, however technology is going at a rate that they will be forced to start doing something. Thanks for visiting our website, and we are happy that you find it educating.
      The Team.
