15 / 07 / 2019Fiona Doherty

We are in a candidate driven market, while this is a great time for graduate job hunters, it means employers need to be smarter, competitive and more innovative if they want to attract the best talent.

Demand for the top graduates is high, with over 5,000 vacancies advertised on the TARGETjobs website last year alone. Such immense competition means understanding how students approach their job hunt and what they are looking for helps you stay ahead of the game.
