Prospects welcomes AGR Winter Survey findings
“This latest survey from the AGR offers more evidence of an improved graduate employment market, which is welcome news for students and graduates.
“This year’s graduates can be confident that there are more opportunities available and that they can expect better job prospects than the previous cohort as the economy strengthens. However, they should remember that they will, as always, need to put the effort in to finding them, make considered applications and seek careers advice from their university.
“Employers should be mindful that some sectors, such as IT and engineering, are starting to experience skills shortages as the economy recovers and these skills are more in demand. Shortages in other fields may emerge as business conditions improve.
“The graduate jobs market is not yet back to where it was before the recession, but these findings allow us to be optimistic about the year ahead for students and graduates looking for work.”
