Guardian: Employers predict more graduate vacancies

Writing about web page,,1703623,00.html

A report in the Guardian yesterday stated:

Graduate employment vacancies are expected to rise for the third consecutive year, but recruiters fear applicants will not have the right social skills to do the job, according to research published today.


More than half of the 222 companies who took part in the biannual AGR graduate recruitment survey, said they were not confident they would be able to fill all their vacancies because university leavers lacked the necessary teamwork, leadership and communication skills.

The Guardian, 7th February, 2006

If you want to increase your chance of getting a graduate job, there are still places left on free skills courses this term, for both Undergraduates and Postgraduates.

These postgraduate courses have recently been opened for registration:

Essential skills! This session will include an introduction to oral communication skills, including making presentations. This is for you if you lack experience in expressing your ideas in an academic setting, or if you feel shy or nervous when asked to do so. This session will be practical, friendly and confidence building.

  • Sp6b – Communication Skills 2

This is a lively and very useful day for anybody wanting to improve and develop their communication skills.

Conferences, presentations, working in groups, chairing sessions, rappoteur role etc. This session is to examine and practice the professional skills of oral communication in the public domain; and to help you shine at conferences!

Drop–in Sessions

Writing about web page

If you would like a blue Uni. card sized reminder of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate drop-in sessions, you can pick them up from The Learning Grid, Warwick Skills or Student Development and Support Reception.

Gentle reminder:

Please do not drop them on the floor as

A sad skills drop-in card - wanting a loving owner

  1. It makes me sad when I spot them on the way to Costcutter to buy some lunch

  2. It is littering

  3. I know how much time was put into producing them

  4. The cards are designed to remind you of the drop-in session times - they don't work if they are trodden into the floor

More PG courses!
