MP undertakes graduate jobs talk
Friday, 05 June 2009
An MP has been in discussion with a graduate jobs advice firm in order to see what can be done to help this year's university leavers find employment.
David Lammy, the minister of state for higher education, met today (June 5th) with Mike Hill, Jayne Rowley and Allan Brown from Graduate Prospects, along with its charitable arm the Higher Education Careers Services Unit.
According to Onrec.com, the group agreed that those looking for graduate jobs need as much support as they can get, and Mr Lammy said he would make sure the government provided help.
He told the news provider: "It's natural that students are considering their options even more closely and that's why we want to provide as much information as possible about the opportunities available to students including work, internships, further study or volunteering."
Graduate job competition will be tough this summer and candidates will need to show employers that they are determined, according to the Tyne and Wear Enterprise Trust, speaking to the Middlesbrough Evening Gazette.
