Probably employers prefer UK based degree.. and my is overseas.. I don't think I've done poorly in my studies, 21 out of 30 marks in the subjects I had are B or either A, I got 10 (A) for my dissertation thesis of PBA and I'm sure I have the necessary skills, can speak additional language, have great references etc. But somehow I'm still rejected for admin jobs that don't require experience but skills which I do have..(Original post by TitanicTeutonicPhil)
Not really. A bright mind, quick apprehension, strong marks, and good IT and communication skills were enough for me and my circle of friends to get in.
That's true - but what people don't get a job in their chosen field after graduation? I have trouble respecting those as they must have done pretty poorly on their degree or clearly lack other essential skills.

I cannot believe I'm reading this crap from a so called judgmental tool who thinks they are better than anyone else and personifies pretentious!!!!!! I simply came on here because I want to know what to where for a meter reader interview( yes a meter reader) what's wrong with that if someone likes working outdoors and might be the perfect job for their mind and soul and content in doing repetitive tasks. I too went to university and graduated with a 1st but I don't brag about an intelligent mind and that I should be getting prospective so called challenging jobs, it's not for everyone I'm afraid. I came out and worked in a supermarket and my prerogative was to find my niche and learn what I was good at, university does not teach you life skills and real life experience. Not everyone has to fit the profile you are deluding everyone's minds with. Everyone is unique and a degree in which they did may not be the one at the end of it all wanted to persue into a rewarding career maybe some wanted to back track and wish they went down a vocational route. And as for hobo jobs my father who had a degree could speak four different languages and was very brigh worked as a meter technician, he is now sadly dead but he was very content. So please don't preach your judgemental crap, as you are casting your own inabitions and insecurities onto everyone else, sounds like deep down you are not content in life, but I'm sure you'll preach otherwise. Who fixes your car a mechanic, who fixers your boilers gas technicians, who fits your broadband...technicians...who itemises your water and electricity rates.....meter readers, they people work hard and love the work they do so don't you dare make a high and mighty self righteous higher class segregated hirachy out of this. You are a tool!!!!!
