Paid graduate training scheme announced in Yorkshire
Wednesday, 19 August 2009
A graduate recruitment scheme is to be organised in Yorkshire after a local group secured funding to provide paid internships to university leavers.
Graduates Yorkshire will give degree-holders the chance to show employers the skills they gained at university through the internships, as well as offering a valuable addition to a CV.
According to Onrec.com, unsuccessful applicants to the scheme will still be able to take advantage of the advice and support the organisation offers in order to increase their chances in the competitive graduate job market.
Martin Edmondson, chief executive of Graduates Yorkshire, told the news provider: "By offering paid internships, companies gain from getting the most talented graduates and not just the ones with wealthy parents, who can afford to work for free."
Worcester University recently announced a new scheme which gives former students the chance to land a paid graduate internship and training package, the Independent reported.
