TARGETjobs news roundup

Hello and welcome to the TARGETjobs news roundup. There have been some big things going on at TJ Towers this week; we’re developing more ways to broadcast the latest events in the world of graduate jobs.

The news from the recruitment sectors has been relatively quiet this week, but we have more than made up with this with some big announcements of our own – more on this later. For now we’ve got some interesting stories from the worlds of IT and engineering, accountancy and law:

There is also big news for anyone on Twitter. Last week we announced the arrival of our brand new @TjobsMarketing feed for anyone interested in jobs in marketing and the media. This week we are proud to announce the arrival of a batch of others:

But if those sectors don’t interest you then keep reading, we’ve got more sectors to add next week, and plenty more news from across the range of graduate employers:
  • In some mixed news from the AGR we’ve found out that starting salaries for graduates will rise by 6% over the next year. However, the overall number of vacancies will decrease by 0.6%.
  • We also had some advice for you about how to submit your job application. This also included an extended metaphor about the ways in which getting a graduate job is a lot like getting a partner. Tweet us if you can think of any more.
  • And finally it’s time for the deadline roundup. It’s a relatively quiet week this week, but that only means you’ll have more time to put together the perfect application. Look at our recent series on common application pitfalls to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes. Check out the latest jobs here.
