Geography employment prospectsWatch
I am looking to apply to a Russell group university, but don't want to become a map maker or teacher and want some advice.
Finding a job is pretty easy. The great thing about a geography degree is that it teaches you universal skills that all employers look for. Skills like problem solving, research, data analysis, statistics, report writing etc. Once you have those skills, it's easy to apply them to all sorts of different jobs.
Sometimes the problem is more about communicating what a Geography degree entails. Because, as you mention, there are some stereotypes.
