New Look spring edition of Graduate Market Trends is out this week
Highlights of GMT Spring 2010:
- Recruitment of ‘generation crunch’ – explores the demand for graduates by SMEs and finds that there is a lack of understanding of what a “graduate” actually is.
- Employer concepts of graduate employability – employer perceptions of graduates and the skills they value, surprising results include the importance placed by employers on cultural and social awareness.
- Portfolio careers - Dr Barrie Hopson takes a look at this growing career pattern and considers what the so-called Generation Y wants from a job.
- Graduate retention and migration in the West of England – examines the movement of graduates and finds the majority of those employed six months after graduating had no prior connection with the area.
The online version of GMT has more articles, one exploring the theme of higher education and the knowledge economy and another article presenting graduate’s experiences of networking as part of their job seeking activities.
