Web Works Wonders for Students and Graduate Jobs

06/14/2001 09:25:48

Just think for a moment about how the average student or graduate goes about finding a job - they probably buy a newspaper and check what's available. Research into effective job search suggests that this may be the least useful thing anyone could do to access good work opportunities, so consider a rather more interesting web based alternative, that really can make a difference.

Imagine a professional, North West focussed website supported by all the North West university Careers Services with a job bank of vacancies for graduates and students, that means permanent free access to graduate and part time, temporary and placement type vacancies. Think about a website with thousands of vacancies, waiting for talented students and graduates. Now you're thinking about North West Students and Graduates On Line, a new website, designed to make it easy to get a great student or graduate job, especially in the North West.

Students or graduates visiting the website can view vacancies on line and make contact with employers. By registering on the website and giving details of their preferences for jobs, they can enjoy the benefits of being regularly emailed with vacancies to suit them. Employers like using the site because they can advertise their vacancies or placements free of charge on a web site that is accessed by thousands of students and graduates.

So all students and graduates can take the www route to work by registering on the website now on Check it out yourself - you'll find a range of interesting jobs from mystery shopper to journalist to art gallery assistant to TV company location assistant and that's just today's batch!

Any staff or students wishing more information on North West Students and Graduates On Line can contact the Liaison Officer for the website by phone at Lancaster University Careers Service on 01524 592483 or by email
