London graduate job hunters helped by Boris Johnson
Tuesday, 21 July 2009
The mayor of London has offered a helping hand to the city's university leavers by setting up a website with information relevant to getting a graduate job.
Launched in conjunction with the University of London's Careers Group today (July 21st), the website will feature advice on writing CVs, how to approach finding employment and a search engine which will link degree subjects to a list of potential employers.
Boris Johnson said: "There is no denying it's tough out there, but I am reliably informed that there are still plenty of graduate opportunities to be had if you know where to look. That is why, with the excellent support of the Careers Group, we have developed this key initiative."
He added that he would like to see more graduate internships offered by employers across London, adding to the city's already positive reputation for the schemes.
Financial advice website moneysupermarket.com recently told those leaving university this summer that many high street banks offer savings accounts with interest-free overdrafts to help battle graduate debt.
