TARGETjobs News Roundup

Hello and welcome to this week’s graduate recruitment news roundup. Here we summarise what we have been covering on our site this week. 

You may not know this but every year we run Breakfast News events where we meet with recruiters to discuss the latest graduate recruitment trends, what they want from graduates and so on.  It is where the graduate recruitment ideas of tomorrow begin to take shape.

At last week’s Breakfast News event in London we met to discuss STEM graduates and the real value that science, technology, engineering and mathematics graduates bring to organisations. We also dug a little deeper into media reports that would have you believe that there is a shortage of STEM graduates. It turns out that there ARE enough science and engineering graduates out there. Here’s the truth behind the shortage of STEM graduates.

In other news…

If a career in hospitality tickles your fancy, find out what salary you can expect from a graduate job in this industry.

Or if charity work interests you, check out the starting pay you can expect in this sector.

And we have another interview with key advice for law students applying for their training contracts. Sam Lee, graduate recruitment manager at Bond Dickinson, tells us commercial questions on the application form are especially important. 

As always we conclude the news with next week’s graduate job deadlines. Hurry before they go. 

Hope you all enjoy the (hopefully sunny!) bank holiday weekend. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for live updates on all things to do with graduate job hunting.
