I have finally landed a job on a graduate scheme after numerous rejections. Ironically, the most frustrating aspect of my long and arduous battle to secure a job was not the rejections itself, but having to deal with the Graduate Recruitment Team’s who either seem to have no idea of what they are doing or do not have the common decency to communicate why on earth it is taking them so long to get back to you (not even a generic message!!!).
Now it is time for us undergraduates/graduates to unite and name and shame these so called respectable firms. I feel that we have the right to do so as a number of us would have completed tedious application forms only to be treated like peasants afterwards.
So tell WikiJobs who is the WORST GRADUATE RECRUITMENT TEAM (WOGRETE) that you have dealt with?
I imagine that their may be some repetition of firms, but this will only emphasise just how woeful these firms are so please feel free to share your opinion even though the firm of your choice may have already been commented on.
This may seem quite petty, but I am hoping that these graduate recruiters will see this and think of ways that they can improve their service to their potential employees. It will also allow people to see who THE TIMEWASTERS are and allow them to decide whether they really want to apply to these firms.
Please try and make your comments “constructive” as this is what these firms like. Please also note that this thread is not limited to Professional Services Firms (I also have this thread in the Investment Banking Forum).
