Do employers want us?

I write in response to Sam Murray's letter (NCE 1 May) regarding the lack of jobs available to graduates.

I am 16 years old and it is my intention to find a job in civil engineering/environmental engineering this summer after my GCSEs. I have already made some enquiries.

I don't hold out much hope for Sam in his search for a job. From my experience in writing to 16 companies only four bothered to reply – thanks Entec, RPS, Gifford and Hyder for your interest.

This doesn't give a good impression of the industry. However I will continue to search for a post in this field.
