IT software firm Symantec is to open its doors to graduate job hunters as well as those wanting to improve their CVs with work experience.
Announcing its new Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) graduate recruitment and internship scheme, the firm said it will employ more than 350 graduates globally, 25 of which will be in the UK.
On top of this, 13 university leavers will be able to secure an internship with the company, boosting the chances of landing a graduate job.
Symantec, which owns Norton Antivirus, is hoping to attract young people through a new Facebook-based marketing initiative.
Michaela Burr, director talent acquisition for the EMEA scheme, said: "The future looks positive for Symantec and we're excited about finding some of our future leaders among today's graduates."
The Belfast Telegraph recently reported that IT graduates could take part in a new initiative from the Northern Ireland firm First Derivatives, which will see them gain international business skills.
