TARGETjobs News Roundup
Hello and welcome to this week’s TARGETjobs news roundup. Today we start by congratulating our Comic Relief showstopper challenge winner, Jim Talbot. This cake not only looked great; it was also very delicious - now where is my second helping?
If you want to help us raise money for Comic Relief why not like this photo on our Facebook page? For every ‘like’ we receive, we will donate an extra £1 to charity.
Back to business: this week the press circulated a story on how male graduates receive a higher salary than females. Although this is true, it is not the full picture. Our expert Liz is here to shed some light onthese headlines.
Following on from this, we set about finding out which graduate career offers the best pay. If money is your key driver, this is a must-read for you.
For those interested in specific sectors, this week has been dominated with civil engineering and construction industry advice.
First of all, we advised on how best to write CVs and covering letters for jobs in civil and structural engineering.
If you are dealing with online applications, we also wrote advice on how tackle those too.
With all this application advice, you will be sure to get an interview. Fear not: we have that covered too with our ‘Construction interview questions and how to answer them’ article.
BUT – hold your horses. Before you get started on your applications here is some essential research every construction job candidate should be doing.
And for those interested in finance, we have something for you too this week. According to the Association of Graduate Recruiters, the average starting salary for graduates in accountancy is £25,750. There are also many benefits up for grabs. Why not find out what could be in store for you?
Finally, as always, we conclude our news with the latest batch of graduate job deadlines coming up next week. Get them before they go!
