ITV News – Graduates out of work

ITV NewsA 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. An interview with Corinne Mills about graduates out of work.

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 is 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.
