From fresher to finalist, TARGETjobs is unique in its multichannel approach that provides students with the information and resources they need to find internships, placements, and graduate jobs and schemes.
We work closely with university careers offices to ensure that students are given the best possible information about their future career and postgraduate options after graduation.
targetjobs.co.uk advertises over 3,000 work experience and graduate job vacancies from employers large and small every year. We ensure that the students and graduates who use our site are the best candidates by combining employment opportunities with expert careers advice and independent employer information on how to get hired.
We manage a consistent database of 900,000+ students and recent graduates, making us the most effective graduate job board for recruiters.
Within TARGETjobs are sector microsites, run by our expert sector editors, that bring together all career advice and tools related to that sector. We work in partnership with many key websites and organisations including AGCAS and STEP to ensure that users to our site are able to access material written by industry-leading professionals. We also have an exclusive agreement with the Law Society to support its publication Becoming a Solicitor.

Featuring 14 prestigious awards, the TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year event attracts over 3,000 entries from undergraduates studying at 160+ universities across the UK. Over the course of 3 intensive stages, this list is whittled down to just 10 finalists for each of the 14 categories.
Each award is sponsored by a prominent graduate employer, who offer fantastic prizes for the winners, including paid internships, trips abroad and meetings with senior executives.
It gives the opportunity for universities 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.
