TARGETjobs News round up



Hello TARGETjobbers,  it’s time for the news roundup :)

Our editor Ross is unfortunately poorly today so it’ s up to me, Jackie, to keep you updated with the latest graduate recruitment news this week. Bear with me as I try my best to make him proud.
It has been a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to news this week, however it was the construction, property and engineering industries, as well as law that were making the most noise. So let’s start with that:


In other areas
We also reported on the National Union of Students survey which revealed amongst other things that:

·         Three quarters of new students worry about jobs after university. Although unemployment among graduates is still lower than for those without a degree, the worry is still there. Our response: There is plenty of advice on our careers pages that will help you make the most out of your degree and extra-curricular activities to help you stand out from the competition.

·         For those that have graduated, Ross has written a great article on mistakes to avoid when you accept a graduate job offer. You may think you have it all in the bag but follow these simple steps to make sure you don’t lose it at the last hurdle.

·         Lastly, check out the latest jobs here.Good luck to all those applying.
