Given an analysis just came out reporting that the USA has its largest brain-drain of legal immigrants since the 1970′s, it would be interesting to find out just where the 93% believe their job enhancement lies.
COVENTRY, England, October 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Majority of graduates believe Thursday’s EU Summit on “The State of Europe” will not resolve their difficulties securing employment.
According to a survey recently conducted by the research and development team of FindEmployment.com…
- 93% of European graduates are considering emigration to another country in an effort to enhance their job prospects
- in countries where strict austerity measures are being implemented, 55+% of respondents believe the introduced measures have negatively impacted on their ability to obtain work
- An overwhelming 80% of graduates express doubt that EU leaders will come up with any meaningful solutions to the ongoing crisis in youth employment when they meet this week
- 46% of graduates are now convinced that the best career opportunities lie outside of Europe
James Weaver, Director of Find Employment Ltd
“It’s time for EU leaders to work very hard to create opportunities for this generation of graduates and to change such negative public sentiment.
“We are all aware of the devastating impact the inability to find employment can have on any person, not to mention the effect that mass emigration of professionals has on a country’s economic recovery efforts and its future development.”
Further findings of the survey indicate:
- 73% of respondents feel that having a degree is important or crucial in their job search
- however 58% do not feel confident that they will secure a job related to their qualifications
- 61% are not in full time employment
- 32% still searching for any job
- 11% volunteering or interning, and
- 18% in temporary positions
In figures published Thursday 4th October by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on their graduate recruitment for 2012, the firm received a record 35,500 applications for nearly 1,800 places across all student programmes, emphasizing the excessive competition for jobs.
Richard Irwin, PwC head of student recruitment, noted, “In terms of recruitment for 2013, we will be recruiting at very similar levels to 2012.”
Atiyah Wazir Meadows, Online Editor of Eurograduate.com
“In the tough job market it is simply not enough to graduate from a top university or business school.
“Work experience, additional skills, the ability to network, genuine commitment and determination are attributes, which are sought after by the employers.
“With budgets, finance and health being topics of importance across Europe, many graduates feel that recruitment is not a priority for EU leaders.”
The results of the Survey conducted by Find Employment Ltd are based on votes cast by EU residents from 20 September 2012 to 2 October 2012.
Only one vote per user was counted in the final tabulation.
This survey is not scientific and reflects only the opinions of those Internet users who chose to participate.
Detailed survey results are published on the FindEmployment.com website.
