Published: Monday, 11 May 2009   Category: Science, IT and Engineering

Those leaving university this summer looking for graduate IT jobs have been given some tips to help them make sure their CVs are effective in a competitive market.

Tom Fahey, managing director of specialist IT recruitment firm First Point, said that recruitment is no longer "candidate driven" and applicants will have to bow to employers needs if they wish to be successful.

Speaking to Onrec.com, Mr Fahey recommended that IT jobseekers, including graduates, must ensure their CVs are relevant to the particular position they are aiming for.

He also added the need for clarity, saying that employers would not want to spend a lot of time sifting through applications and therefore applicants need to convey information in a precise and clear manner.

Mr Fahey recently gave confidence to those looking for graduate IT jobs explaining to the news provider that here are still employers looking for people with skills in the field.
