For almost 30 years GTI has been developing products and services designed to meet the needs of, and bridge the gap between, students seeking early careers advice and employers offering graduate and apprentice vacancies.
This means that, as we continue to give students the information and advice they need to be successful, then your recruitment needs will be met by engaging with more motivated and better prepared applicants. We pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive list of services for employers, which can be adapted and tailored for your organisation and needs. Among other things, our products and services will allow you to:
Unique in its multi-channel approach, TARGETjobs provides students with the information and resources they need to find internships, placements and graduate jobs and schemes.
targetjobs.co.uk advertises over 3,000 internships and graduate job vacancies every year. By combining advertising with expert careers advice and peer-to-peer reviews of organisations we can ensure that the 1.7 million students and graduates who use our site every month become the type of candidate you want to hear from. As we track the behaviour of TARGETjobs users, we can identify students interested in your sector and display your job adverts as they browse other sites online.
For employers looking to engage with undergraduates through university careers services, our market-leading on-campus print products offer unparalleled branding opportunities. We print over 300,000 copies of our varied careers publications to over 120 universities in the UK, ensuring you continue to build and maintain your recruitment brand on campus.
We know that the best engagement comes when employers can interact with candidates face-to-face, which is why TARGETjobs offers unique opportunities for graduate employers to meet and interact with undergraduates through a diverse range of unique, specialist events. Specialising in niche hard-to-reach groups, sectors and roles, our market-leading events can promote opportunities across sectors and industries, as well as within individual companies.
In-depth knowledge. Strengthening applications.
Havas People consistently recommend TARGETjobs to our clients because it generates a higher number of submitted applications than from any other graduate media.

TARGETconnect is a software solution used by many university careers services to manage the student experience, including students' contact with employers in relation to campus events and jobs. For many employers, this allows for direct access to the system to post opportunities, register for events and ask questions of the careers team.
