When I graduate in my undergraduate economics degree in 2022, it is forecasted the UK will most likely hit a recession as bad if not worse, as the financial crisis of 2008. What future prospects do I have? Already a degree is becoming less and less meaningful in terms of employment and more common. - Will it be hard to find a job? - What If I lose my skills I learn’t from the degree, I will be less attractive to employers? - I’m planning to do a masters to aid my employability but I feel like giving up already. There are so many articles about how a degree in the 21st century is essentially a bit rubbish and not really needed. Statistics show graduates are underemployed which is quite off-putting. I’ll be in a job I didn’t need a degree in, with the back-bone of a large debt and missing 3 years of employment in exchange for a degree.
