Perspectives on graduate employment

Well I can’t believe that another year has gone by and I have welcomed another group of graduates to the Postgraduate Certificate in Employability and Entrepreneurship, how time flies! The course has been going for 5 years now, look how the labour market has changed, or has it really?  Things are supposed to be improving for graduates and I have seen some movement but it is slow and steady and still not easy. Our speaker from Bradford Council always manages to be cheery and  positive, his message that graduates should have more opportunities in the region was  good to hear, great news in fact but then he always did put a positive spin on things even the Westfield shopping centre debate.  Still sounds like there are things out there you just need to look.
