What do Cambridge graduates do?

The top sectors that AMES Cambridge graduates joined were arts and recreation (circa 17% of those who responded), followed by consulting (17%) and then IT (8%) and charity sector (18%). Of course many AMES graduates continue on to further study (circa 17% of the most recent survey) and this may be something that you want to consider.

Will employers want my degree?

The majority of employers that recruit Cambridge graduates do not require a certain degree. They are usually more interested in what you can do rather than what you have studied. Want to know what role would suit you? Take a look at the transferable skills from an AMES degree. Try looking for ideas for help with identifying your personal strengths and preferences. Then search Handshake for internships, jobs or graduate schemes you are interested in. Note the selection criteria that usually focus on "competencies” rather than having studied a certain subject and see which ones are a good fit.

Using my degree

AMES graduates who want to use their degree often think about working in arts and heritage, teaching, publishing or charity sectors. Be aware that all of these sectors have a wide variety of roles. For example HR, Marketing, IT, Finance and Logistics. So if you are interested in a certain sector think about what you are good at and which roles might be a good fit for you. Network with alumni who studied AMES. You can see what they do, their career to date and contact them for further information. Use LinkedIn in a similar way.
