TARGETjobs news roundup

Hello, good afternoon and welcome. You’ve reached the TARGETjobs news roundup, and you’re about to get schooled. We have heaps of news, including stories on everything from girls in IT to the skills you’ll need to get a graduate job. Sit down, pay attention and learn.

It’s IT that is dominating the news this week. There are two stories that will put a smile on any IT graduate job hunter’s face. There are more jobs available, and more girls are being encouraged to get into the profession.

But that isn’t all that’s happening in the sectors. We also have news from the worlds of automotive and property services engineering, and professional services.
And outside the sectors there are a couple of interesting things going on as well.
  • If you’ve been following Abi_TARGETjobs’ series on recruiting TARGETjobs interns you’ll know it has been a bit hit-and-miss. This week she’s telling us all about what worked for her and why it went down well.
  • We have also run down the list of the top 10 skills and competencies you need to get a graduate job. This roundup of our popular series should give you plenty of ideas for ways to impress employers.
  • Finally, we’ve got the list of next week’s deadlines. It’s a comparatively quiet week next week, but there are still deadlines closing every single day. Meet them or miss out. Check out the latest jobs here.
