Birmingham gives graduates civic welcome

Published: Wednesday, 24 September 2008   Category: Life after graduation

Those who have been lucky enough to secure graduate jobs in Birmingham's professional and financial services sector are to be given a civic welcome.

Scheduled for October 8th, the event will be held at the Council House in the city's Victoria Square, reports the Birmingham Post.

Attendees will receive motivational talks from a range of business personalities, including Sarah Gee, former chairman of Birmingham Future.

Speaking to the newspaper, Matt Taylor, the body's current leader, said: "Young professionals play a significant part in the vibrancy and prosperity of the sector and we want all of them to know how thrilled we are they have chosen Birmingham as the launch pad for their careers."

This is the second time the event has taken place and last year's gathering had a "fantastic atmosphere", he added.

Recently, the Guardian reported comments by Leonard Orban, the EU commissioner for multilingualism, claimed that people can boost their chances of finding a graduate job if they have a second language.ADNFCR-1068-ID-18795235-ADNFCR
