The survey carried out by graduate-jobs.com found that more than one-in-five students at British universities now look for graduate jobs before their final year of university, in stark contrast with just one-in-20 in 2002.The article says that this is due to 2 reasons:
- Students are becoming more career-minded
- Top companies are approaching students earlier
We know that early engagement is key and we are putting in a lot of work to get students to start thinking about careers and employability from the first year. Perhaps it's beginning to pay off.
