dc.description.abstract What do our students do with their mathermatics degree? How do they make the transition to the professional workforce? This study results from in-depth interviews with 18 graduates who have moved into a range of industries. The study is fro the perspective of graduates who have graduated within the past five years from five universities. We investigate how they perceive their university study has helped them move into the workforce. Graduates find the move to the workforce difficult and many have not found an appropriate niche for their skills. This paper describes, in narrative style, the experiences of recent graduates. en_US
