We can count better than Cambridge
LinkedIn reckons we’re shit at finance, but at least we suck less than Cambridge
Didn’t get into Oxbridge? Get over it. Here’s the definitive proof that we’re better than them.
LinkedIn’s just released its uni league tables for career prospects, and they reckon we make better accountants than Cambridge grads.
We ranked two places ahead of Cambridge in their Accounting category – we snapped up 14th place while Cambridge limped in at a measly 16th.
And if you’re an artsy wanker who dreams of filming Russell Brand’s next video rant, you’re in the right place. We also beat the toffs at wasting our lives on TV and Facebook – we ranked 6th in the Media category, leaving Cambridge behind in 7th place.
But the victory might be a bit short-lived – we have pretty shit prospects in the other categories.
According to LinkedIn, if you want to go into Finance, your competition from Aston, Strathclyde and Loughborough are miles better than you. We’re only the 17th-best in the country at getting grads into Finance jobs, while they’re ranked 7th, 10th and 16th.
And apparently Big Issue Jeff has inspired no one to be a good salesman, because you’re less likely to get into Marketing than grads from Bath, Aston and Surrey Unis.
