One in four graduates reports being overqualified for their jobs

One in four UK graduates reports being overqualified for their jobs, with the OECD saying this may partly be down to some of them lacking basic numeracy and literacy skills.
A 2012 Survey of Adult Skills showed that university-educated adults in England or Northern Ireland were more likely to work in jobs that require lower qualifications, than on average across OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s) countries.
Some 28% of university degree holders in England, and 24% in Northern Ireland, reported being overqualified for their jobs – compared to 14% on average across OECD countries and economies that participated in the survey.
