This chapter compares the perceptions of the nature of graduate labour in the political and media domains with labour market outcomes. It explains that there is a general misunderstanding of the changing nature of the graduate labour market (as outlined in Chapter 2). Many do not understand or accept the economic and social realities that embed the current graduate labour market. The chapter provides a few suggestions to improve representations of the graduate labour market.
