HECSU launches latest guide on higher education and graduate labour market

The autumn edition of Graduate Market Trends (GMT), the Higher Education Careers Services Unit’s quarterly guide to the higher education and graduate labour market, launches today (20th October 2010). 

Featuring exclusive interviews with European Commissioners Androulla Vassiliou and László Andor, it explores the impact of EU policy and practice on higher education and the graduate labour market, and offers an insight into how the new ‘Youth on the Move’ initiative can substantially reduce unemployment among young people in Europe by 2020.

GMT Autumn also covers in-depth analysis of Graduate Prospects’ Real Prospects 2010 study – the only survey to explore the reality of graduate employment – and the Institute of Employment’s research on graduates working in the creative industries. Exploring the relationship between higher education and business further, GMT goes on to showcase new research on the value of a humanities degree in today’s labour market and the popularity of the new Erasmus work placement scheme among students, universities and graduate employers.

Aphrodite Papadatou, editor of GMT says: “As ever, we have brought together some of the leading experts and opinion formers in higher education and graduate employment. As well as producing a hard copy publication, we have extended the content online as a response to requests for more in-depth analysis.” 

Graduate Market Trends is published free of charge for the HR, careers service and higher education community. It can be downloaded from www.hecsu.ac.uk.
