AGR Conference 2014 - LaunchPad Recruits

Natasha Bernal

At the AGR Conference this year, we met a lot of recruiters who are just as excited as we are about graduate recruitment. With the speedy rise in jobs available for graduates, it's a good time to be a talented first jobber.

According to data from High Fliers, there will be a 9% increase in graduate job vacancies in the year ahead, as graduate vacancies hit their highest level since 2007.

Social media has become the go-to platform for graduates who are looking for ways to get hired by companies that they are interested in working for. Venturebeat published that 500,000 jobs are tweeted monthly, estimated to increase to two million a month in 2014. These are staggering figures that demonstrate the need for versatility and creativity to connect with candidates that are more connected online than ever.

In case you missed the event, here is a video shot by Casual Films that sums up the conference:
