Published: Thursday, 24 March 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

Experience of budget management and networking skills will give candidates for graduate vacancies every chance of landing jobs in the private sector, according to Hays.

Mark Staniland, managing director of career transition services at the recruitment firm, said "experience of managing large budgets will be attractive experience to the private sector".

"Candidates should showcase their ability to structure, control and manage … budgets," he added.

Mr Staniland focuses on the importance of large budgets, but people looking for graduate opportunities may like to show they can manage budgets at university, from personal money to the cashflow of a society or other group.

When looking at candidates for graduate vacancies, many private sector employers chose graduates who have experience in the professional world.

Recent research has shown that the private sector looks more likely to pull the United Kingdom out of its economic downturn, as the public sector is suffering from government cuts.
