    Hey, so I've been looking at various course stats on unistats and one thing has been really bugging me.
    My favourite course, despite having very high overall employment rates, has only 30% of graduates in a professional/managerial role. This seems low and I'm worried?

    Does anyone know exactly what this means and how important it is at this stage in a career?
    Needing some advice before i make any decisions..

    Which course is it?

    The most common sectors/jobs list at the bottom of the employment page should give you an idea whether these are entry level jobs in a competitive industry or whether a lot of graduates end up working in retail/bar work through necessity.
