Personally, I just listen to Gentleman’s Dub Club to get my fix.   I don’t know what I like more about Gentleman’s Dub Club (GDC); the fact that they gave reggae an intergalactic feel in their new album, or that they demonstrate how music knows no limitations to ethnicity.

The Graduate Book – All You Need to Know to Do Really Well at Work by Chris Davies

The transition from university to the workplace can be tricky to say the least, with multiple surveys of graduate employers over the years finding time and again that none or few of their new intake were ‘work ready’ when leaving the halls of academia. The essential skills such as being able to work effectively in a team, having determination and a good work ethic, or even simply being able to communicate with colleagues, are often lacking , much to the frustration of bosses.  The graduate market is flooded with far more potential candidates than positions available, so it’s never been…
