People looking for graduate jobs in the world of botany might want to consider taking a postgraduate course in order to boost their chances.
Writing for the Independent, Izabella Scott explains that people can learn specialist skills by going on to further study.
She says: "Postgraduate courses are designed for graduates wanting to specialise in the research of plants, often biochemical."
Those opting for such a course will find that a range of graduate jobs in sectors including teaching, research and ecology become available to them, she adds.
Anyone who is looking for a job after completing their qualification will find that employers such as the Natural History Museum, the Royal Horticultural Society and the Forestry Commission could offer suitable vacancies, Ms Scott stated.
Recently, the Observer reported comments by Ruth Spellman who claimed that business mentors can help people find their feet when they enter the world of graduate jobs.
