Woman's Hour - Graduation Special: Planning Your Career
From getting that first job to running a two-career family - planning your career for the female graduate. Presented by Sheila McClennon.
For most of us Graduation is one of those Red Letter Days you never forget but once you've got your degree, what then? In today's tough economic climate planning your career on, or even before leaving university, has never been more important and for female graduates, it is inevitably more complicated should you at some stage wish to combine career with children. Whilst numbers of female graduates outstripped their male counterparts by over a third last year , on current evidence, male graduates can still expect to earn on average a fifth more in the first decade of their career . Sheila McClennon talks to new graduates and employers about how to get your first graduate job and keep your career on track thereafter.
