Since your second year at University you encounter a lot of talk about graduate jobs and graduate schemes. Surely both of them are a good kick-start for a career but, how can you decide which one is the most suitable for you?
The first difference between grad scheme and grad job is that the first one needs an early application, typically one year before the actual graduation. Choosing a graduate scheme means working in a professional space, typically in a big name company that will look good on your CV. You can expect high quality training during the course of your time there and you will earn more money than in a graduate job.
