One thing that made all of our Mum’s happy and proud this Mother’s Day was our nice feature yesterday in The Mail on Sunday!
Not strictly purely about Shiply, the piece’s main aim was to educate about graduate recruitment. Being a recent graduate myself, I can appreciate the tough times at the moment with finding jobs.
The article in the Mail introduces Shiplyas a model small firm that graduates should look to as an alternative to the mainstream graduate schemes which are becoming tougher and tougher to get on.
We recently took on a graduate, Chris Mason, full-time and he is doing a fantastic job. Not only do I think that graduates should be sending their CVs to small businesses but I also think that SMEs> should be actively seeking them out. Sure, experience is key, but everyone needs that first break and you may well be surprised at the level of skills recent graduates can offer.
