The article presents results of a survey conducted among Polish geography graduates. They were asked questions about the relevance of their degree to their transition from university studies to the job market. The research project revealed that less than half of them found a job.
Out of working graduates, one in five geographers worked in an area related to geography and only one in six graduates found their degree useful in their job-seeking efforts. The respondents were also of the view that potential employers often did not perceive them as professionals with a specialised range of skills.
