Graduate vacancies set to increase - High Fliers
AGCAS welcomes the latest research from High Fliers, which indicates that the number of graduate vacancies amongst the large employers is set to increase by 0.9%. This is in line with AGCAS' own research, which monitors graduate vacancies from a broader range of employers and also indicates a modest improvement in outlook.
Although the figures quoted for the number of applications for each vacancy look high if you are a graduate job seeker, careers professionals know that these employers have always been very attractive to students and so recruitment has always been very competitive. Students who apply to these firms should make sure that their application is as strong as it can possibly be and that they have a plan B, which includes a wider spread of recruiters rather than just the large firms.
Anne-Marie Martin, AGCAS President, said:
"Great news from the large employers that they are increasing their recruitment quotas. Anyone graduating in June still needs to ensure that their applications are as well structured as possible because competition for these recruiters remains high. Visit your careers service for help with career choice, applications and interviews."
