UK jobs market | 'It shouldn't be an attitude of despair for graduates'

'It shouldn't be an attitude of despair for graduates'

For many recent graduates, the current UK jobs market paints a bleak picture, and many will be wondering how they can get onto the career ladder.

Data from CV-Library found that the volume of graduate jobs advertised has fallen by 60.3% year-on-year with industries such as marketing, construction and recruitment experiencing larger slumps than others. The jobs board analysed data between January 1 and July 30, 2020, and compared results with 2019 to gauge an understanding of the opportunities currently available to graduate talent.
