Britons 'should not give up on their dream graduate job'

Published: Friday, 14 May 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

Graduate job hunters should not be dissuaded from pursuing their dreams as a result of the recession, it was suggested yesterday (May 13th).

Writing for the Yorker, recent graduate Ella-Grace Kirton conceded that it is understandable for university leavers to feel that they cannot afford to be idealistic.

However, she explained that she managed to secure her first job - an administrative role at a London hospital - through making 20 applications a day for three months.

"I hit the jackpot and I'm sure there were many of us who weren't so lucky," she wrote.

"But I like to think that if I was one of those people, I wouldn't have given up on what I really wanted to do, or just accepted that times were hard and therefore my chosen career was going to be out of reach."

Ms Kirton's comments come after a survey by Milkround.com earlier this week revealed that 82 per cent of graduates still believe the banking industry offers a viable career path.ADNFCR-1068-ID-19779372-ADNFCR
