'Treat graduates with respect over jobs'

Published: Wednesday, 05 May 2010   Category: Retail

Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in retail may be interested to hear that an employment expert has said that a careful policy of rejection needs to be adopted to minimise risk of potentially losing lifelong customers worth thousands of pounds.

Will Shepherd, managing director of PPS, said that the difficult jobs market means employers really do have the pick of the cream of the crop right now, but they should treat people who do not make the cut with caution.

He added: "We all have an ego and want to be appreciated and whilst job applicants realise they are not going to get every job they go after, they will have invested a substantial amount of time in job hunting, which is an arduous process.

"Many will feel they are within their rights to expect at least some form of communication thanking them for their interest."

This news comes soon after research published by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and KPMG pointed towards the first increase in employment across the UK since winter 2008.
