At my last job we had several people with 2.2's, including the most intelligent guy in my team who is now a senior financial analyst for a very well known firm, and at age 25 earns more than most people can dream of. 3 people in our friendship group at uni all got a 2.2 and they were all in graduate level positions within a year.

Most graduate schemes will be closed to you, but who cares? Hardly anyone gets employed through one of those anyway.

You'll be fine, although I sympathise how low post graduate unemployment makes one feel. I've been there.
How did your friend get into this? I’m a 2:1 graduate who could use some guidance. As for OP, I hope you’re ok

From what I gather his 2.2 was more down to not taking his degree seriously than lack of ability, but it was still a 2.2.

He got on top of professional qualifications really early, got himself noticed in a fairly entry level role by going way beyond the job description and just kept plugging away despite knockback after knockback. I've not spoken to the guy in a long time but just looked him up on LinkedIn and he's now in a very senior position having completed his industry qualification.

I suppose the point here is that sometimes it's worth taking a step back in order to take two forward.

Basically. Grades mean nothing . Be striving for at least level 4 (ie HND) and a t least 2 years experience in your required career path. Make sure you are also driving and you will be able to nail 25-35 a year job depending on location (Im currently in Lincolshire) . Im currently looking at housing development or ecp development businesses (once successful at least 60 -150k a year)so will be building dream bungalow with pool, but sadly alot of work + development, ideally just ensure you have degree equiv, experience, driving and a good job or other investments by 30 and you will be solid (no children before the also for a solid business and large house + cars xx
