85 applicants per graduate job
Published: Wednesday, 10 July 2013
The Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) summer survey has found that employers are receiving, on average, 85 applications for each job role.
Whilst the winter survey predicted a modest increase in graduate recruitment, there has been a sharp downturn in banking and finance leading to greater competition for graduate schemes. There is still growth, mainly in Engineering, Energy and Telecommunications. There has also been higher job growth in certain regions including: South East, West Midlands and Scotland.
