Graduates job-finding hopes dashed: Deloitte

Bad economic news dents confidence

Fears of declining graduate job prospects for has taken its toll on the
confidence of university leavers, a recruitment partner at Deloitte has warned.

Graduate recruitment partner Sarah Shillingford says repeated bad news about
the economy and rising unemployment is pushing some graduates into a ‘career
paralysis’ trap in which graduates are so anxious that they will not find a job
that they take no action to look for one.

Media reports have foreshadowed the toughest job market in a decade for
graduates leaving university this summer.

The UK Graduate Careers Survey of 16,357 graduates found that 52 per cent
regarded their employment prospects as ‘very limited’ – the highest number since
the survey started in 1995.
