Recruiting graduates after the recession
Attracting the best graduate for the job can be tough, particularly at a time when unemployment is high, competition for jobs is fierce, and effective selection moves up the recruitment agenda.

The reality, however, is that there are jobs out there. We experienced a 50% year-on-year increase in advertising from recruiters in the first quarter of 2010 and the climate is looking much brighter.
So, how do you engage with Gen Y graduates, what are they looking for and how can you tempt the best talent into your business?
