Grads In At The Deep End After Uni Ends

Grads In At The Deep End After Uni Ends

These university graduates are preparing for the plunge into the job market with a set of unusual graduation photographs all taken underwater.

The snaps come as a growing number of graduates look for ways to mark the end of years of hard work studying by coming up with a really special set of photographs which have included dance routines on Tiananmen Square and bizarre videos taken in the university toilets.

These underwater snaps were taken by three graduates from Chongqing University in Chongqing municipality in southwest China.

And unlike the toilet pictures that showed male graduates using the urinals as female graduates looked on, the underwater photos were widely praised as the best so far for originality and composition.

Chyou Hsia, Yan Ko and Fang Yin Pai, all aged 24, had their snaps go viral after they posted them on the Chinese version of Facebook, and two of the girls even had enquiries from potential employers who said they found the original idea a sign of the sort of freethinking they needed in their companies.

HR Specialist Wang Feng, 45, said: "During the university and college graduation season, many new graduates are showing great creativity on how and where to capture the perfect picture.

"It is not surprising in the job market where everyone is looking to make an impression and get an edge over their competitors that a good graduation photo may tip the balance and land them their dream job."
