Life after graduation
Graduates could find a range of new opportunities by looking east, recent research suggests.
The survey, compiled by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC), claims that almost three quarters of senior executives believe that Russian and eastern Europe will solve their skills shortage by looking overseas, reports onrec.com.
And only 27 per cent of respondents think that the former eastern bloc companies will train local talent to help fill the labour void.
Explaining the findings, Peter Felix president of the AESC told the publication: "These countries have reached a critical stage in which they require strong talent to make them global economic players."
He added: "The question is where will that talent come from? While Russia is developing a younger 'golden generation', top talent is still in short supply."
According to Cactus Worldwide, the most popular areas of employment among graduate ex-pats are property, economics and teaching English as a foreign language.
