Graduates given words of optimism over jobs
Friday, 19 June 2009
Students seeking to enter the world of work through a graduate job have been told by one expert that there are employment opportunities out there.
Peter Fantom, head of Aberdeen University's Career Service, has spoken to the Press and Journal about the recent batch of negative media reports concerning the lack of graduate jobs available to this year's university leavers.
He said that some people had made suggestions that graduates are facing the worst year for trying to find employment straight out of university, but claimed that "this is far from the case".
Colleague Rhona Gibson backed up his claims by telling the newspaper: "Currently we have over 50 summer work opportunities on the Careers Service website for positions in Aberdeen, the UK and internationally."
Students studying chemistry at University College London recently said that they have not been affected by increasingly pessimistic reports about the state of the graduate job market.
