BIS launches parents guide to helping graduates find work
A new guide for parents of recent graduates written by career coach Denise Taylor has been launched by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
The guide aims to help parents support graduates in their search for work and understand the support available.
Denise Taylor said: "Now six months on from their graduation, many graduates may be in need of some family support in their job search. Despite their children being grown up, many parents of graduates are still naturally concerned about their prospects and want to be able to help."
The guide includes information on the Government backed Graduate Talent Pool website (www.direct.gov.uk/graduates) which helps match graduates to internship opportunities. BIS says there are currently about 6,570 vacancies on the Graduate Talent Pool website, with around two thirds offering payment.
Minister of state for higher education David Lammy said: "Internships can help graduates kick-start their careers and are part of a package of measures to support them and improve their chances of getting a long term and well paid career. The guide explains all of the opportunities available so that parents and graduates can discuss the options together.
"Higher education is a long term investment that pays back big dividends over a working lifetime and even in these difficult times graduates do better than those with lower qualifications."
The 'Parent Motivators' guide is available to download at www.direct.gov.uk/graduates
