TARGETjobs news roundup

Hello, good afternoon and welcome to the TARGETjobs weekly news roundup. It’s been a busy week, with new people, advice, promises and threats. Whether you’re looking for a job RIGHT NOW, or you’re just about to start the autumn term and want to get ahead of the game, this is the place to be.

Leading the news this week is the built environment sector. There is good news from both the construction and property sectors. In the week when Prince Andrew abseiled down the side of The Shard, it is perhaps fitting that these sectors are finding their feet again.


However, we also have articles from the investment, insurance and marketing and media sectors:
But, of course, there is plenty more content for those of you who are not particularly interested in those sectors:
  • First up we sunk our teeth into the government’s new scheme for unemployed jobseekers. The trial scheme will mean that unemployed people between 18 and 24 claiming benefits will have to do 6 months worth of unpaid work.
  • We have also been training up our new events promotions executives. You can expect to see them on campus soon: on Monday they will be at the University of Edinburgh’s freshers fair, and Tuesday they will be at the University of Glasgow.
  • We also gave you some timely advice on how being in a university sports team could really help your graduate job prospects. Freshers week is the perfect time to sign up for new commitments.
  • And, as usual we have our regular roundup of all next week's graduate job deadlines. This will be a big week for vacancies outside of London, so if you don’t fancy living in the Capital, make sure you check it out. Check out the latest jobs here.
