Creative Industries To Buck the Trend?

Careers staff at the University of the Arts, London have noted that in spite of all the bad news on the graduate jobs market, they have had a 30% rise in vacancies notified to their Creative Opportunities vacancy website.

Apparently employers are starting to favour recruiting new graduates (or interns instead of graduates) in place of those with more experience.

They markedly favour word of mouth sources of recruitment and many are turning to social networking sites like Facebook and Linked In to find recruits.
