This week on Gradulthood

This week, as promised, we returned Gradulthood to what is in our opinion, our usual high level of service. Happily, the page views have responded, and are significantly up on last week. Here's what's been on the blog in the last 7 days:

5 things: London - The return of the '5 things' series, this week Joe's attention turned to London.

Tweet of the week - Three things that have come to my attention this week, including the return of The Big Sam.

A Gradult against the clock - One of the big hitters this week, sometimes the clock is not your friend.

Gradult is (nearly) a real world - Another big hitter - the word 'Gradult' featured on the Guardian website, and it wasn't either of us who wrote it!

To work for free, or to not work for free - Yet another big hitter - Georgia Banham joins us again to talk about unpaid work experience.

Now that's what I call thrift: #23 - Couch surfing in the capital.

What value a degree? - The final big hitter of the week asked, what are degrees worth? More than their financial cost? I question my own time at University.

More of the same next week, including more insight from South Korea courtesy of Christian Lapper.
