New research has shown that those who have landed themselves a graduate job in the current climate are happy with their position.
Higher Education Statistics Agency figures revealed that 86.9 per cent of those who left university in 2005 are "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their current graduate job and their career in general.
Martin Pennington, a director at the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services, commented on the findings: "Practically nine out of ten graduates are saying that they are happy with their careers to date, and that is a very positive message to put out about graduate careers in general."
He added that university studies questioning graduates six months after they left are usually less positive because it takes more than just a degree to be successful in a working capacity.
The recent Graduate Prospects survey showed that those university leavers in the east of the country who have landed themselves with a graduate job believe that they are safe, according to the Eastern Daily Press.
