But, if you do have that illustrious Business degree, how do you know which job is right for you?

Below, you’ll find the stories of five grads who took a degree in this area and are now working in roles they love. The good news for you? All of their teams are on the hunt for similar grads right now.

You may as well take a look; you know they have a track-record of hiring people with your degree, after all. 



1. San, Business Management graduate from the University of Kent

Now an Associate Director at Harvey Nash in London


San joined Harvey Nash straight after leaving Canterbury in 2004. Since then, he’s soared up through the ranks and now sits as an Associate Director in their London office. He not only appreciates the incredible incentives the Recruitment giants offer – such as free food and trips to Vegas – but also the fact he’s been able to work overseas too:

“With over 41+ offices across different continents, there’s always the opportunity, when there’s a promotion or a new opening, [for us to] apply,” he observed. “I've gone to the likes of Poland, Vietnam, Chicago and New York to work... It's something that not every company can offer.”

If you’re looking to break into Recruitment, you’d struggle to find a better place to start than this international team. Based in the iconic Heron Tower in the City, you’ll help to find talent for high profile clients as their Trainee Recruitment Consultant, as well as benefiting from a salary of £20,000 plus commission and high-level training.
