Former student helps graduate job hunters

Published: Tuesday, 08 September 2009   Category: Work Experience

A university leaver who landed a graduate job in the creatives industry has helped his fellow degree-holders to gain a similar employment opportunity.

University of Plymouth graduate Matt O'Shea set up the Digital Creatives initiative to allow current job hunters to promote their talents over the internet in order to attract employers across the UK.

According to The Drum, Mr O'Shea already knew how difficult it was to land a graduate job in the field of arts and hopes the site will help its users to bag interviews and perhaps a position at a company.

"I was one of the lucky ones and got an internship within days of finishing my course and was then offered a full-time job two months later, but I wanted to set the website up to help others who are still hunting for work," he explained.

Newmediaage recently reported that the Internet Advertising Bureau, Institute of Practitioners in Advertising and the British Interactive Media Association have all called for companies in the field to match graduate recruitment schemes in finance and retail.
