scroll-32278 640According to a recent article by the BBC and research by High Fliers of more than 18,000 university leavers - graduates who have had internships or work experience whilst at university are three times as likely to land jobs.
 
Job applications are at record levels with applications being sent earlier than ever. The research suggests that students will have submitted an average of more than seven job applications each before leaving university. This is the highest level found in 18 years of research into the graduate jobs market.
 
Researchers estimate that from the 30 universities involved in the study there will have been 427,000 job applications generated this year - almost double the number from five years ago!
 
The destination for these young job hunters is more likely than ever to be London. Half of all graduates now expect to work in London, with the capital the most popular location for students leaving 27 out of 30 universities. The only exceptions are Queen's University in Belfast and Strathclyde and Glasgow universities.
