‘The Graduate Recruitment Process Explained’ is the first in a series of educational online guides launched by www.itjobsforgraduates.com. As well as offering advice from the company itself, it features graduate recruitment specialists from financial advisory company KPMG and global trading systems software specialist, Fidessa. Topics covered include what happens once the candidate has left the interview, whether IT is a good career in view of the current outsourcing trend and how graduates with a non-IT degree can get a foothold in the technology sector.
Teresa Sperti, marketing manager at www.itjobsforgraduates.com explains: “The recruitment process can be daunting at the best of times, and this is especially so for graduates who don’t yet have any experience and therefore don’t know what to expect. Our aim is to arm university leavers with the knowledge they need so that they can find the position that is right for them – and give themselves a good starting point on the IT career ladder.”
