TARGETjobs news roundup

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the TARGETjobs news roundup; all of this week’s news from the world of graduate recruitment.
The sector generating the most headlines this week was law, with a pair of topical stories for anyone looking to move into the legal sector.
However, there was breaking news in other sectors too. For example:
Of course, these aren’t the only sectors graduates are looking to work in, and there was plenty of general careers advice too:
  • If you’ve been following our Facebook page, you may have noticed our series on developing your job hunt like a military campaign; useful if you’re suffering from low morale or fatigue. 
  • We also broke down exactly what a graduate CV should look like. It’s pretty basic stuff, but we get so many complaints from recruiters that it simply isn’t worth risking making these mistakes. 
  • Finally we hit you with the regular roundup of all things deadline. The big recruiter this week is Nationwide, which is closing all of its grad scheme applications on Friday 27. Check out the latest graduate jobs here. 
Join us this time next week for the roundup of graduate recruitment news, careers advice and developing stories.
