'Research vital for graduate jobs'
Monday, 20 October 2008
Those looking for graduate jobs need to be flexible in their approach, it has been claimed.
According to the Guardian, finding a position is becoming harder and this means that it is even more important to be prepared when looking for work.
Speaking to the newspaper, Carl Gilleard, chief executive of the Association of Graduate Recruiters urged people to spend some time researching the world of graduate jobs as a whole.
"It is imperative that they keep in touch with what is happening in the market," he said.
People should not limit themselves by ruling out certain sectors all together, Mr Gilleard added.
Last week, Alison Clark, director of the National Association of Student Employment Services, claimed that people who engage in part-time work while at university will boost their chances of landing a graduate role in future.
According to Ms Clark, any work experience gained during their studies will help people develop their professional skills.
