Specialized professions that require a college degree for even entry level work are considered graduate careers. Medical specialists such as doctors must complete college as well as a medical degree to practice. They are therefore considered a graduate career. Lawyers, upper-level educators and pharmacists are all careers where entry level candidates are either expected or required to obtain a degree before their career can begin.
There are careers where one can obtain an entry level position without a degree, but they are still considered graduate careers. The world of finance is one place where this is true.
