Mon, 30 Jun 2014Most of today's graduates have already changed careers at least once by the age of 24, research has found.

The survey of 2,000 graduates, conducted by New College of the Humanities, found that 93% of graduates have changed profession or industry once or more since leaving university, with over one in 10 having switched more than three times.

In addition, only half of all UK graduates work in a field that relates to their degree after leaving university. While nearly 50% of graduates chose a degree course to work specifically in a particular field, one in seven never found work in their chosen industry.
