Final-year students apply for jobs earlier, says graduate researcher

Fri, 13 Jun 2014
An increasing number of students are applying for jobs up to a year before their graduation, a new study has found.

The research by High Fliers, the graduate recruitment research company, found that in this academic year 43% of finalists made job applications by the end of October, compared with 31% five years ago.
 
The poll of more than 18,000 finalists suggests they are making an average of 7.5 job applications, an all-time high, and a quarter of those surveyed expected to start a graduate job as soon as they finished studying.

The students who took part in the survey had collectively made 463,000 job applications this year, compared with 257,000 made by those who graduated in 2010.
