10 reasons why this is the best time to become a graduate?

With all the gloom laden talk you hear about the challenges of student employment and getting a job out of uni we thought it was worth putting some thought into the brighter side of being a graduate today.

In our view there has never been a better time to start out in a career for at least the following reasons

  1. Technology is spurring creativity and opening new opportunities for everyone to do more amazing things
  2. More interesting jobs than ever before as most of the admin and routine work has been automated out
  3. Able to progress faster than ever before as age has become less of a discriminator for progression. If you are good enough you are old enough.
  4. More global than ever and more careers offer the ability to be international
  5. Careers are no longer seen as linear. It is ok to take a break. It is ok to do something new.
  6. You can make a small idea big, all great things start at the margin which is where you are when you start out
  7. The new crafts around digital are more important than ever and you are best placed to master them
  8. More opportunities than ever to be famous and to get more people to listen to your big ideas
  9. Organisations are genuinely engaged in dealing with social problems
  10. You have access to the best information ever and unbelievable opportunities for free learning from the web

This is as good a time as any to take on the world and make great things happen.
