Online PR News – 09-July-2012 – Doncaster – In just two months, Grads.co.uk has successfully built up a team of 100 resident bloggers who range from students in their first year to graduates joining the ‘big world’. The Grads.co.uk blog gives them a platform to express their opinions on a range of subjects from the current job market to gaining experience whilst still at university.
If you wanted to understand how students and graduates feel, then all you have to do is dip into the Grads.co.uk blog where all of their trials and tribulations are displayed for all to see. Article topics include:
Graduating & going into Temping
Lying on my CV – Will I get Caught?
Bloggers are also welcomed to shoot videos with their opinions, with the latest video from Farah giving advice on volunteering and travelling.
As many graduates now find themselves in the vast open water that is the job market, the Grads.co.uk blog has seen a lot of unrest, feelings of neglect and general disappointment in the current job market. Feeling as though they were fed numerous lies and tales of an exotic recruitment process once they’d got their degree, they now find themselves hit with a harsh reality – there’s too many graduates and not enough jobs.
Grads.co.uk isn’t just giving these students and graduates a voice to express their disappointments but is instead building a full understanding of just what they’re looking for in employers, internships and graduate schemes.
Speaking about the success of the blog, Marketing Executive, Rebecca Moody commented; “Whilst it is obvious that there aren’t enough graduate jobs available and the recruitment market isn’t as buoyant as hoped, there are some deep feelings of resentment and distrust that need assessing.
“When deciding whether to go to university, students are told of all the positives and fantastic companies that they could end up working for, but reality is a lot different. While some graduates will be lucky enough to land a job with one of the top 100 graduate employers, a lot will find themselves continually turned down, or completely ignored, resulting in a complete knock in confidence.
“Speaking to the students and graduates who contribute to our blog, they are just grateful for the opportunity to showcase their skills, with us attaching a full profile to their work so potential employers can see who is behind them. As the future of our country, by listening to these students and graduates we can really get an idea as to what they’re looking for; with their top gripe being the fact they rarely get a response from employers.”
