Manchester-based businessman, Scott Fletcher has warned University students that “the world doesn’t owe you a job”.
According to a new poll published by National Union of Students (NUS) 39% of students and graduates are pessimistic about their chances in getting a job in the next twelve months.
However, Fletcher, whose tech firm, ANS Group, offers apprenticeships for dozens of young people hoping to pursue a career in IT through his Cloud Academy, believes students and graduates should not rely on big corporations to hand them jobs.
“SMEs are a good market place to learn on the job. They can give you the valuable experience you need to progress,” says the entrepreneur.
“Students need to prepare to knuckle down for 2-3 years while in University and be realistic about their chances.”
“Experience needs to be added to degrees, especially if a degree is not in a relevant industry such as science and tech.”
“Graduates should not rule out starting their own business, as opposed to waiting to be handed a job from the job-tree.”
