Gap year, volunteering and charities
Recent university leavers looking for opportunities in the gap year, volunteering and charities sector may be interested to hear the views of a young student who has called on the leaders of the main parties to establish a policy on degree-level jobs.
Writing a column for the Guardian's website, Lisa Hearn, a Journalism and Media Studies student from the University of Portsmouth, said that she will be basing her first general election vote on which party can help with graduate jobs.
She wrote: "This time next year I will be applying for jobs and my big concern is whether I will even be able to get one. With the job climate as it is at the moment, finding a job is a huge worry to people my age.
"The party who provides the most help with finding graduates jobs and support will be my winner."
Later this month the leaders of the three main political parties will lock horns in a series of televised debates and the general election will follow on May 6th.
