    Last year, we released our first podcast titled, “How will graduate jobs be impacted by Covid-19?”, which focused on the initial impact that Covid-19 had on the graduate labour market at that time.  Here, Rae takes another look at how the graduate market is faring, a year on from the start of the pandemic. You can find more information on specific sectors visit the Career Research and Planning pages.
