    Now I've sure most of you heard this before but it caught my curiosity. Like many others who graduated but work in a role unrelated to thier degree over these several of years. Some wanted to go back to find work related to thier study and thinking about applying again for the graduate jobs. Is there a limit of years after graduation be called as a graduate? When can we say our knowledge are obsolete and our degree is useless?

    Some grad schemes/grad jobs specify that you have to have graduated within x years to apply- they will specify how many. However equally others don't mind.
