When I started the Grad Programme one thing I noticed was that everyone seemed to come from different colleges and different types of courses.

 

The differences were pretty distinct, from IT to Finance to Psychology! So there's no particular educational background that makes a good Grad - it's more about the person.

 

Obviously if you've covered areas like Project Management in college it'll come in useful if you get a placement on a project. However, when I look at myself I'm now in Real Estate Finance, an area where I've no background or education and I'm having a great time!

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
