    IT/InfoSystems graduates: Where are you now?

    IT/IS graduates, what are you doing now and how long did it take you to find your first IT role?

    I've heard from a number of my friends that graduated with a UNSW Information Systems degree that they're really struggling to find a job in the IT industry and are forced to work in catering/other roles. How hard is it to find a job in IT with a UNSW Information Systems degree?
