Those looking for graduate jobs in IT will need good interpersonal skills if they are to make it to the top, according a new study.
Research by Hays reveals that technical knowledge experience is not enough for candidates hoping to break into management.
Almost all (94 per cent) of directors surveyed by the firm stated the two factors alone cannot guarantee progression.
James Lloyd Townshend, managing director of Hays, said: "You need a proven track record and be up to date with the direction of technology, but you need to think strategically, give clear direction and engage with people."
Meanwhile, those who are looking for graduate jobs have been advised to find the most suitable bank account at the same time.
According to Fairinvestment.co.uk, there is no point in staying loyal to an institution if another is offering a more suitable deal.
The firm suggests finding the account with the largest interest-free overdraft possible.
