More Vacancies For New Graduates

Recommended Posts

16% more vacancies and starting salaries up, according to http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/5166438.stm

Graduates are experiencing the best chance for a decade of finding a job with a top employer, a survey suggests. The Association of Graduate Recruiters summer survey, of 235 of its 680 members, showed a 16.7% increase in vacancy levels. There were 28 applications per vacancy - down from 33 last year. Most employers thought the calibre of recruits had held up, and more than a quarter said it was better this year. The median starting salary was £23,136 . . .

This is the government's usual trick of using blue-chip milkround employers to talk about graduate starting salaries. As nowadays only 1 in 40 graduates lands a milkround job it's hardly of concern if graduate openings have doubled and the kids now start on £45k.

In the book, The Mismanagement of Talent, published a couple of years back, they found that graduates actually start on £12.5k as the vast majority have to take any old job.

A marketing friend of mine says that graduate recruitment is good value for money. Lots of good publicity to quality future clients at very little cost..... almost as little as the number of jobs on offer :D
