Graduate salaries surge a head in Europe

Salaries
for new graduates in Europe are increasing faster than for any other group,
according to a survey by careers management consultancy.

The
pan-European research by topcareers.net shows that salaries for new graduates
have increased by 35 per cent since 1998.

Ambitious
graduates fresh from university now have the chance to earn up to £35,000,
working in an investment bank or management consultancy. Graduates in Germany
have higher starting salaries than graduates in other EU countries, with UK
graduates coming a close second.

There
are also an increasing number of graduate opportunities in Europe, with the 50
largest graduate recruiters reporting over 22,000 opportunities last year as
compared with less than 10,000 in 1996.
