New economic figures out
The Stats Office have just published employment data for the summer and, well, the labour market noticeably worsened.
Unemployment went up to 8.1%, the highest figure for 2 years, employment went down, just in time for new graduates to hit the jobs market.
It is going to be a rocky autumn for graduate jobseekers - let's give them all the support we can, and let's hope things improve or next year's destination data may not be cheerful reading.
