Graduate job hunters 'should make use of the internet'
Monday, 07 July 2008
Students hoping to mount a successful hunt for graduate jobs should embrace the internet, a new survey claims.
A poll conducted by social networking website Webjam found that 80 per cent of university careers advisers recommended that people monitor their internet-presence to help them in their graduate jobs search, On Rec reports.
It also found that 60 per cent think job hunters should put additional material online to support their CV.
Speaking to the website, Yann Motte, co-founder and chief executive officer of Webjam, said: "It's good to see that young people are recognising the power of the web as a tool for self-publicity."
However, people should make sure that the information available about them online does not present an inaccurate picture of them, he added.
Last week, the Guardian's Grad Facts 2008 survey revealed that 91 per cent of graduates feel they made the right decision in going to university.
