TARGETjobs Easter News Roundup


For those of you reading this for the first time, welcome to our weekly news roundup blog where we summarise all the news and advice we’ve published on our site this past week. I am writing a day earlier than usual this week, as a bank holiday weekend is coming up and we won’t be in our office J

Let me get started by wishing you all a lovely Easter.


Hope you all have a great time, eat lots of chocolate eggs and relax! You’ve earned it. And for those of you revising or finishing off dissertations, good luck and remember there is proof that chocolate is linked to geniuses.J 

Back to business, this week we hit you with a few salary related items, starting with giving you an idea of the salary you can expect as a graduate management consultant.

We also did some research for you to find out whether you should opt for public sector security or private sector salary when making your graduate management choice.  You may think you know all the details you need to make your decision but there are a few things you could be missing. 

If you are still deciding which career path to follow, perhaps knowing which sector offers the most jobs will help you decide on the profession to pursue. So here’s a list of the proportion of graduate jobs that are provided by different sectors and the expected changes for the year ahead.  

And if retail is the sector that inspires you, we are here to tell you how to become a trainee retail manager with Majestic Wine. Although others in the industry are struggling, Majestic is thriving, so here’s how to write them an impressive application.

Hope you find this information useful. Don’t forget that you too can write about your advice and personal experiences for this blog. If this sounds interesting, email me with your ideas: jackie.balchin2@targetjobs.co.uk


Until next week, goodbye.
