Graduate Fog is the UK’s most talked-about careers blog for students and graduates looking for accessible, up-to-date career advice to help you navigate today’s tough, fast-moving job market.
Our no-nonsense blog is world famous for fighting your corner. Right from the start (in 2010!) we’ve always put you – our readers – first in everything we do. It’s because of you that we became known as a formidable campaigning force, squaring up to dozens of big firms and famous people who weren’t treating you with the care respect you deserve, or who haven’t always paid their interns a decent wage for their work (hello Tony Blair, X Factor, Vivienne Westwood and Sir Philip Green).
What began as a scrappy, single-issue blog has now evolved into a credible voice of young job seekers, covering all the issues that matter most to you. Most recently we have been campaigning to raise awareness about graduate exit fees, as we believe employers should not charge graduates huge sums if they wish to leave their job. (Sometimes things don’t work out – get over it!)
HOW WE MAKE MONEY
For a long time we had no advertisers, sponsors or investors – Graduate Fog was a labour of love. But then something weird happened. The UK’s most forward-thinking graduate employers began to approach us, asking how we could help them be ‘better’ employers of young people. After asking our readers what you thought, we decided to dip a toe in the water, working with a handful of carefully-screened employers, whose value and priorities align with ours.
