Published: Friday, 30 November 2007   Category: Graduate Job sector Reports

Graduate unemployment has reached a seven-year low, according to a report, which could be great news for students looking for graduate jobs.

The research, carried out by the Higher Education Careers Services Unit (HECSU) shows that there is only six per cent unemployment among graduates in the UK, the lowest it has been since 2000, reports onrec.com.

Mike Hill, chief executive of HECSU, said: "Overall the report paints a very positive picture of career prospects for UK graduates, with the best chance of employment for many years."

HECSU's research says that architecture, sports science, history and law graduates' numbers fell over the past year.

There has been a 2.5 per cent drop in unemployment of geography graduates which is now at the lowest number it has been for 17 years, according to the study.

Meanwhile, graduates about start jobs in offices have been warned that keyboards, mice and telephones can have thousands of germ microbes on them, according to a report.

PROtech IT Hygiene released the study saying UK offices could be a cause for illness in employees, according to onrec.com.
