Here’s the latest in a long series of sensationalist and misleading newspaper articles about the state of the grad job market. Sorry Louisa but it’s true. One day journalists might get their head round the fact that the AGR survey of members only represents a small proportion of graduate recruiters. Typically the large ones that only account for around 5% of all graduate jobs. So that’s a 1.2pc fall from a sample of around 16,000 grad positions. It’s really barely news-worthy. In fact the most newsworthy thing is that the graduate market place continues to run along at a consistent pace in spite of a couple of years of extremely challenging economic conditions. A miracle really and one to be thankful for.
