TARGETjobs news roundup

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls welcome to the main event; the TARGETjobs news roundup. Here we’ll run you through the highs and lows, what’s hot and what’s not this week in the world of graduate recruitment. So sit back, relax, and lend me your eyes.

For the second week running the construction sector has been dominating the news, with a number of important developments for anyone who wants to move in this direction. Check out last week’s news to find out about the other significant developments in the sector.

But don’t, for a second, imagine that the news this week was only about the built environment. In fact there were developments in law, IT and accountancy.
But for those not interested in a career in accountancy, construction, engineering, IT or law, we also put together some general advice for your viewing pleasure.
  • We introduced an ugly new monster that has been popping up on the graduate recruitment radar; ‘inductive reasoning tests’. These tests are designed to test reasoning ability, and prepared graduates will get to grips with them before the big interview.
  • Finally we're giving you a Valentines-themed rundown of all things deadline next week. If you’re looking for the graduate job you will love this is the place. Check out the latest jobs here.
