Wednesday, 15 October 2008
Those hunting for graduate jobs in Scotland are still optimistic about the future, it seems.
Comments by made by job hunter's at a jobs fair in the country seem to indicate they do not think they will have too many problems finding positions, reports BBC News.
Speaking to the news provider, Alan Porteous, a risk management student at Glasgow Caledonian University said: "Even in the current climate there will be a need for more people in this area. That's where the banks ran into trouble."
Civil engineering students also reported that there are still graduate jobs on offer in the construction industry, despite the downturn, the website added.
Yesterday, the Guardian reported the findings of a study by the London School of Economics which found those who attend top universities can expect to earn more.
According to the research, people who get a degree from an institution in the top 25 per cent will earn around ten to 16 per cent more than those who graduate from one in the lowest quarter.
