Monday, 27 October 2008
The Crown Prosecution Service's (CPS) graduate recruitment scheme is increasingly popular with university-leavers, it has been claimed.
According to a CPS spokesperson, there were more than 2,000 applications for only 37 places in 2007-08, indicating that many graduates are targeting entry-level roles with the service.
She stated: "The CPS's lawyers enjoy flexible working and our lawyers are staying with us for longer than before.
"We remain an employer of choice for students and people working with the legal world."
Last week, Joe McDermott, chief executive of Interviewgold.com, commented that graduates could improve their chances of securing desired employment by honing their interview skills.
According to the University of Nottingham, employers also seek candidates who have undertaken relevant work experience placements comments that may be of interest to those applying for over-subscribed graduate schemes.
