Graduate turns to enterprise
Friday, 31 July 2009
The current economic climate has meant that many employers are no longer supplying as many graduate jobs as they once were, but one university leaver has decided to take matters into his own hands.
Wil Cheung, who holds a business degree from Warwick University, set up a discount card which aims to help consumers in the north-east make the most of deals from businesses in the area.
According to nebusiness.co.uk, the card already has 10,000 members and is becoming a success, contrary to Mr Cheung's experiences looking for a graduate employer to take advantage of his skills.
He explained his idea to the news provider: "I know there are many discount cards on the market at the moment, but this one is different as it includes offers on a vast range of things."
The Surrey Mirror recently reported that 23-year-old Patrick Kingshot had set up his own firm dealing in second-hand music equipment while his friends are still battling with the highly-competitive graduate job market.
