TARGETjobs graduate news roundup


Hello, good afternoon and welcome to the TARGETjobs news roundup. We’re counting down to the bank holiday weekend here, and we hope you’re looking forward to it too. To celebrate we’re giving you loads of reading material. It could mean the difference between job and not-job.

This week it is the legal sector that is leading the news. There have been developments at both ends of the university process. But there have also been changes in other sectors as well. Retail, property, accountancy, consultancy and IT have all generated interesting news:

However, if law isn’t your area of interest, there is plenty going on in the other sectors:
But there are also important goings on which are not attached to any particular sector:
  • For those of you about to start your final year it’s now more important than ever to try your hardest. According to research from the Consumer Business Index and Pearson, degree class is one of most important factors when employers hire graduates.
  • We’ve also had a bit of a tongue-in-cheek look at five things you shouldn’t do on work experience. It would be hard to mess up badly enough to do all five, but you might just be making one of these mistakes.  
  • And then there is the usual roundup of graduate job deadlines. As with the last two weeks, there are plenty of jobs in IT. This week though, they are joined by vacancies in engineering, retail, finance and human resources. Check out the latest jobs here.
