9 out of 10 Reading graduates are employed within six months after leaving
Career prospects for Reading graduates in construction and surveying disciplines are excellent, particularly in consulting, contracting and in the commercial and public service sectors. A large number of companies actively seek out Reading graduates for example consultants Davis Langdon & Everest, E C Harris, Gardiner & Theobald, Gleeds, and Turner and Townsend, and contractors Balfour Beatty, Costain, Kier, and Skanska.
We organise several career events in the Autumn and Spring term. These events are attended by a large number of companies, eager to offer employment opportunities to our undergraduates. Many students receive job offers several months before they graduate. Most students also receive a £2000 'golden hello' on starting.
