“2014 signals a boom in UK Graduate employment opportunities” claims Jason Staniforth – Digital Marketing Specialist for Vacancy Filler Recruitment Software.

“It has previously been understood that you go to university, graduate, and then enter the working world to become exactly what you studied for – the harsh reality is that  this has not been the case for a number of years, and many graduates are finding  out the  hard way. 

Many of the opportunities available will be offered to those who have previously worked for the company, meaning graduates who took advantage of paid internships, industrial placements or vacation work will have the upper hand in the grad-race for paid work in a related sector. 


Technology advances and the rapid uptake of social media vehicles hasn’t gone unnoticed by employers, with an increase in advertising spend being dedicated to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and even YouTube to reach prospect graduate employees, this has resulted in less spend on traditional methods such as graduate directories and sector/ local guides.
