'Flexibility' required for graduate jobs
Thursday, 02 July 2009
A graduate recruitment expert has said that those leaving university this summer must look in more far flung places than the usual routes if they are to find employment.
Rather than relying on the 'big' graduate job providers for work, Steve Huxham, chairman of The Recruitment Society, advises degree-holders to consider looking at local businesses.
The recession has given those looking for a graduate job the chance to search out the road less travelled, according to Mr Huxham, even if it means working harder to find a suitable position.
He added: "It is not going to be a market where graduates who are not currently sorted will be able to sit back and wait for the offers to come rolling in."
Chris Morrall, managing director of Talent Transition, recently said that smaller companies are actually increasing graduate job intake in the recession, while the bigger firms are reducing theirs.
