ITV News – Graduates out of work

A huge jobs fair in the Midlands has been attracting thousands of students. The National Graduate Recruitment Exhibition began today and continues tomorrow at the NEC in Birmingham.

Reporter – the studies may be over but the hard work may just have began.

Graduates – I started looking at law and they’re not hiring at all, so its very difficult and to find a graduate scheme is quite hard, there i so much competition.

Interview – Corinne Mills of Personal Career Management – having a degree is always going to be a career advantage that i would say.

Scott Bannerman, Event Organiser – the big difference is you can talk to people face to face and talk about what i call the “me” question, why i want to join the company and what the culture of the company is about.
