Graduates who have bolstered their degree with
relevant work experience will reap the benefits when it comes to
finding a job, it has been claimed.
A recent study by CRAC: The Career Development Organisation found
that many graduates do not pursue a career in IT, as they perceive
it as "boring".
Consequently, employers are becoming increasingly cautious about
employing people with standard IT qualifications in favour of those
who show added qualities.
"It's not just IT skills they're after, it's passion and
commitment," said a spokesman for ClickAJob.
"Commitment is harder, best demonstrated by go-getter applicants
who actively flank their degree by going out and grabbing the right
kind of work experience in the holidays or whenever."
"Do that, and employers take notice," he says.
He added that today's recruiters are more likely to put their faith
in someone who "can bet on themselves".
