Graduates should be flexible, says PwC

Life after graduation
Top graduate job provider PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has said that university leavers wishing to find employment this year must not be fussy about location.
Sonja Stockton, head of recruitment at PwC, warned that those determined on getting a graduate job in the City may be disappointed and should keep their options open.
Ms Stockton reassured young people that "great careers can start anywhere", and in tough economic times they would have to find graduate jobs in different locations and different sectors, if necessary.
As long as skills are acquired, any job could send a graduate on their way to success, according to the employer.
"Starting out in the regions, whether it's the west Midlands, north-east, greater London or the south-east means you can have a great start to your career and a strong platform for growth. Think beyond London," she added.
Chris Morrall, managing director of Talent Transition, recently told those hoping to land graduate jobs in top companies will do better to look at charities and small businesses.
