Today's graduates need to be quick off the mark if they are to
secure the best jobs, according to new research.
A study by TMP Worldwide and TARGETjobs indicated that some 31 per
cent are feeling less confident about landing a graduate vacancy,
while 21 per cent feel that graduate jobs are filled quickly and they have not had
the time to apply, reports Onrec.
Furthermore, the research found that 17 per cent of respondents
already have a job lined up, but a further 25 per cent are
concerned about their job opportunities.
TMP Worldwide also advised employers to consider the part that
social networking plays in graduates everyday lives.
Jayne Cullen, head of graduate solutions at TMP Worldwide, says:
"Employers must not underestimate the importance of social
networking to younger graduates.
"Banning social networking at work could alienate the population of
new recruits very quickly, and after the cost of recruiting them
and training them this might not be the wisest move to make."
It has been forecast that advertisement spending on UK social
networks will reach £285 million by 2012, reports Telecom
