Supermarket swipe


Can I please offer a heartfelt thanks to the Institution for forwarding details of a large graduate recruitment exhibition in London. I am currently happy with my position but welcomed the invitation to visit the exhibition and to meet and discuss my future employment with representatives of large national and multi-national companies.

I was a little intrigued to note that not one of the recruiters named were from the construction sector and I welcome the concern of the Institution to promote careers outside the industry. Have we finally reached the position where even our Institution thinks a graduates best career prospects lie in supermarkets or banking?
