Is a 2:1 degree worth more than work experience?
Following the success of the first and second Graduate Answer Time, totaljobs.com, Bernard Hodes and The Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) are delighted to invite you to a morning of insight and debate.
Hosted by Channel Four presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, an expert panel representing the graduate employment industry and stakeholders associated with the education and employment sectors will be questioned to find out whether employers’ priorities are changing as the graduate pool begins to shrink.
Is the era of simply having a 2:1 degree as a pre-requisite for a graduate job over? Is a university degree a good indication of a person’s ability or skill level? And, if not, what is and how should young people get the skills, qualifications and experience that employers need?
Contributing to the panel discussion will be a group of university and A-Level students to give their unique insight into the current graduate job market and their view on how it is changing.
We do hope you can join us for what promises to be a robust debate, enjoyable breakfast, and an opportunity to network.
