Graduates forced into jobs beneath their capabilities

One
in three new graduates will struggle to get a job that justifies the effort and cost of a
university degree, claims research released last week.

The
report by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research claims that
many graduates will have to take jobs that see them initially under-employed and over-qualified. It
analysed the retailing, computer services, transport and communication industries.

Author
Geoff Mason said, "There are many jobs in service industries which may be
better suited to people with a background of on-the-job training and practical
work experience."
