TARGETjobs news roundup


Hello, good afternoon and welcome to the TARGETjobs weekly news roundup. Whether you’re hip-deep in your summer job, work experience, or Olympics coverage, you should take a few minutes to check up on developments in graduate recruitment.

This week we’ve had something of an engineering special. There have been surveys, government announcements, and business developments. All of this could have an impact on your prospects if you are going into this sector.

However, if you’re not interested in engineering, there have been some significant developments elsewhere. Property in particular has seen some exciting changes, but accountancy and consulting have also had major developments:
Even if you aren’t interested in those sectors, we still have some pertinent advice for you:
  • For those who have recently come back from an assessment centre or interview, we’ve got some advice on how to follow up. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to wait for the employer to call you.
  • And as usual, we have our roundup of all the graduate vacancies closing soon. If you’re keen to work in the IT sector, this week’s vacancies will be particularly interesting to you. Check out the latest jobs here.
