Previous studies have revealed what employers have said they require in terms of career or transferable skills in their prospective employees when they leave university. This paper reports on a survey of groups of geographers who graduated one, five and 10 years ago from two different British institutions of higher education. The students identified the features of their geography training which had been of most value to them in their careers and pinpointed aspects which could have been better developed in their degree courses. Conclusions are drawn about the future of the geography curriculum in the light of the graduates' views on their 'graduateness' and their likely career patterns in the 21st century.
