The Problem: Students Face Barriers To Gaining Work Experience

of university students say work experience requirements are the largest barrier to finding work

*Source: Prospects/Jisc, Early Careers Survey 2021

When evaluating graduate job applications, employers actively look for internships or work experience to make their decision on a candidate. 

The barriers to gaining traditional work experience such as location, high costs, visas, travel, and time commitments, as well as the difficulty of matching with approved host companies, make it difficult for students to develop the professional skills they need alongside their studies. 

This all leads to students who aren’t –and don’t feel– career-ready.
