We print over 300,000 copies of our varied careers publications to over 120 universities in the UK. In addition to promoting general graduate opportunities and advice, we have sector-specific publications covering the consulting, finance, engineering, law, IT, property and teaching sectors, where students will find all they need to help them make the best career decisions for them – and to make the best applications and assessment day performances.
Our ‘Undergraduate of the Year’ event gives universities the opportunity to showcase their most exceptional students, while encouraging their student body to gain extra skills and credits to make them more employable after graduation.
In-depth knowledge. Strengthening applications.
Take-up has been tremendous! We ran out of The Guardian UK 300 very quickly, and are now out of TARGETjobs Finance as well, with many requests for more. Both students and careers advisers find the publications invaluable and specifically look out for them.
