There were two really positive articles today in the Independent and Mirror both drawing attention to the fact that companies are beginning to recruit more people onto their graduate schemes.
The title of the article in the Independent announces Graduate Job Market Bounces Back the article mentions that there has been a 7% rise in graduate jobs, however it is still early days; green root as opposed to green shoots.
The article in the mirror is entitled: Jobs! There are still great jobs up for grabs the article discusses how top employers have already started to accept applications for students wishing to start a graduate scheme in 2010. It encourages students to apply early to ensure they don’t miss the deadline. It also provides some useful job application and interview tips.
This is promising news for everyone and not just recent graduates. It implies that organisations are thinking about the long term future of their company and furthermore starting to invest in it. It’s great news that businesses are planning beyond the recession and still recruiting.
Lets hope these “green roots” start to turn into shoots soon!
