Graduates with work experience are more attractive than those without

A 2013 report by High Fliers Research concluded that college graduates without work experience have “little chance” of getting a job. High Fliers Research managing director Martin Birchall told The Huffington Post that work experience is “now just as important” as a college degree.

“New graduates who’ve not had any work experience at all during their studies are increasingly unlikely to be offered a good graduate job after university,” said Birchall.
