    • Graduating to Unemployment
    • Students Study to Pass Exams
    • Graduates only have 1% more chance of getting a job than teens with GCSEs
      • Latest data shows 25% of 21-year-olds who left university with a degree in 2011 were unemployed compared with 26% of 16-year-olds with GCSEs/Standard Grades.
    • Student searches for a job on the internet
      • Students are more likely to get a job by handing their application to the boss of the company than emailing their application to the company. Out of ten bosses asked nine said they would be more likely to employ someone they knew personally or who made personal face to face contact with them, before applying for the post.
    • Job rejections are seen as normal to graduates
      • One graduate received 200 job rejections
      • Graduate Rosie Percy was turned down - or just plain ignored - for 200 job applications. She said “ For every 30 applications I receive one generic rejection and the rest are ignored. ”
    • Unemployed Graduates can get depressed due to lack of opportunity
      • The three stages of unemployment are initial shock, then depression and finally adjustment.
    • Latest Official Figures of youth unemployment
      • The latest official figures show 102,000 16-24 year olds were out of work between October and December 2011, which includes 85,000 18-24 year olds.
    • Unemployment causes protests
      • Hundreds marched in Edinburgh yesterday over youth unemployment. Hundreds of students, campaigners and trade unionists joined the Not Another Lost Generation demonstration in Edinburgh. The demonstration called by Scottish Students Against Cuts saw students from Glasgow, Strathclyde, UWS, Dundee, St Andrews and Aberdeen join Edinburgh university and colleges in the capital.
