Graduate job hunters are being encouraged to make use of a "careers matchmaking" service to aid their quest to secure employment.
The Graduate Recruitment Bureau (GRB) has a team of analysers who assess candidates' skills, based on their CVs, and puts them forward for jobs, the Independent reports.
Dan Hawes, co-founder of the company, revealed that it now receives about 75,000 unique users per month, representing a 50 per cent increase since 2008.
He told the newspaper: "We do all the work behind the scenes. We've got contacts with hundreds of employers and we make sure your CV gets to the front of the queue."
Mr Hawes added that the GRB can offer graduates jobs they would not be aware of as a large number of employers use recruitment agencies rather than advertising vacancies.
Meanwhile, a study released this week by the Confederation of British Industry suggested that only six per cent of UK firms plan to impose a total freeze on graduate recruitment this year.
