The full shortlist for the 2017 TARGETjobs awards has been announced, ahead of the event on the 30 March.
There are two main types of awards: the Student Panel awards – voted by a select group of 80 students from various UK universities; and the Sector awards – the best graduate employer in key career sectors, as voted by 62,814 students in this year’s trendence Graduate Survey.
Every single award within these two categories is voted on and determined exclusively by students, a fact that makes the Graduate Recruitment Awards event unlike any other.
In addition, there's also the AGCAS award, the Best University Employability Strategy award and coveted Graduate Employer of the Year award. Shortlists for these awards will be announced soon.
