The author encourages graduates in Great Britain to be open-minded amid a drop in job openings. According to data from the Association of Graduate Recruiters, she reports that the number of positions available to graduates has declined by nearly 4% in 2013. Although some sectors have job openings, including utility companies and information technology, she believes that they just plug the gap left by industries that have not recovered from recession, such as banking.
