2010 was a big year for Employment4students – we’ve had more jobseekers come to the site than ever before, and the challenge of helping students find work has become harder. Student unemployment is at an all-time high, and the freeze (or at least slow down) in recruitment by some of our employers, has made times tougher. On a more positive note, we are seeing employers coming back to the site and advertising positions again. One of our clients, a leading international advisory organisation, is recruiting more interns and graduates than ever before.
We’ve also had more clients come to us over the year, and that has really picked up at the start of 2011. We’ve currently got a range of jobs on from Ernst & Young, Lloyds, Vodafone, as well as a range of smaller clients, all looking for the best candidates to help their businesses move forward.
What does 2011 promise – for students it’s going to be even more important to stand out, to have a strong CV, as much relevant experience as possible, and something to show that they will be invaluable to companies. Getting jobs is still possible, and there are countless success stories. Is it easy to get a job? No – in lots of cases, it isn’t. Put the work though, prepare well and you can still get a great position. Hopefully times will only get easier – but in the meantime, sign up with E4S, and make sure you get the latest relevant jobs delivered to your inbox.
Here at Employment4students we’re completely committed to helping students find jobs – now more than ever. If you have any questions, or suggestions, please let us know. If you want to work with us, and help other students, it would be great to hear from you as well!
All the best,
