TARGETjobs news roundup


Hello and welcome to this week’s edition of the TARGETjobs news roundup. This is the place where we give you the low-down on everything that has been happening in the world of graduate recruitment, condensed into a single sitting broadcast.


As usual we are kicking things off with a look at what has been happening in the sectors. Leading the way this week is the law sector, with a pair of noteworthy stories:


But if the legal sector isn’t you cup of Earl Grey, don’t panic, there’s still a lot going on in the other sectors:
  • For example, we gave you the nod about government reforms to the construction sector. The planning reforms should be a big boost to that sector, and knowing the details could be a big boost to your commercial awareness.
  • We’re also offering another £100 worth of Amazon vouchers as a prize to one person who completes the TARGETjobs Finance student survey. This information is vital in helping us provide you with the information you need to get ahead.
But of course, there’s plenty more if these aren’t the sectors that interest you:
  • For example, there has been a lot of talk about employers asking for Facebook passwords. We asked you ‘Would you trade your privacy for a graduate job?’ You had some interesting things to say.
  • We also brought you the next instalment in our series on the skills and competencies you need to get a graduate job. This week we looked at time management. This is all about being able to deal with a heavy workload without getting flustered.
  • Finally, we brought you our regular batch of graduate jobs with deadlines coming up in the next week. If you’re interested in careers in engineering or accountancy then there are some particular treats for you. But even if you aren’t it is worth taking a look. Check out the latest jobs here.
That was this week’s news, but if you want something to look forward to next week, then keep your eyes peeled for our Easter Egg hunt. It will be happening from Monday 2 April, until Thursday 5 April on both TARGETjobs and TARGETcourses. Free chocolate involved!
