Thinking about graduation ain't fun. Trust me, I've been there. But in all honesty you've got to plan ahead if you want your dream job.

Look at it this way, the world is your oyster! You'll (hopefully) have a worldie degree in your back pocket, so you could do anything you set your mind to.

If you're struggling to find your place in the world Capital Placement have revealed which job roles are most popular with generation Z grads and students, based on their paid internships the company offered last year.


Marketing and buisness development continued to take the number one spot and the fashion industry has also seen a rise in demand, along with start ups and scaleups continuing to attract those first entering the work place.

However, students have started to fall out of love with finance internships at all of Capital Placements destinations.

Vinay Vimalan, Co-founder and CEO of Capital Placement said: “Last year was busy, the demand for internships soared. Students and graduates across the world are increasingly turning to the benefits of paid internships as a credible choice of career development. Our long-term opportunities in London and Singapore offer people a fantastic opportunity to build their prospects, form new connections, widen their horizons and discover what they love doing.”


Vinay continued: “More and more students are unsure about what they want to do after graduating. They are opting for graduate internships - these offer nearly all of the same benefits of a graduate job, but with the added flexibility to see what a career in that specific industry is like without committing to a full-time role.”

Capital Placement work with over 1,500 companies in every industry where employers benefit from passionate, diverse talented individuals who are motivated and eager to learn quickly.

The company's interns come from around the world and Capital Placement’s knowledgeable team works closely with each intern placing them in the most suitable work environment and workplace.
