You only have to be 5% better to be 100% better
With 23% of university students graduating with a 1st, and a further 70% leaving with a 2.1, standing out from the crowd in the graduate job market has never been more difficult!
A graduate’s CV can be sent to an employer in a matter of seconds (and ignored just as quickly), and even with this first obstacle overcome, questionnaires, video interviews, personal profiles, assessment centres, and daunting panel interviews await.
So how to succeed in the professional Hunger Games that is the graduate job marketplace? We know that 90% of C-Level employers value soft skills as much, if not more than academic skills, while 22% of employers claim that a lack of soft skills amongst young employees had caused them embarrassment in front of clients.
