According to a survey published by the Guardian last week, when it comes to making career decisions graduates are now more interested in work/life balance, flexible working options and companies’ corporate social responsibility programmes, than traditional methods used by employers to attract employees, such as high salaries, career development prospects and job security.
Apparently our generation of graduates have been termed “generation y” and employers are at a loss when it comes to the best way to recruit us!
…what are the most important things you look for in a company when you make job applications? …something that wasn’t really mentioned in the survey was reputation of the company - is this important to you? …and when you get job offers, do you still worry about CSR, etc or are you just happy to have been offered a job?
