Graduates DO Want to Work for SMEs. It’s Just They Don’t What Whey Don’t Know What They Are


A student poll on the TARGETjobs graduate careers website revealed today that fewer than 10 per cent of undergraduates would NOT consider working for an SME.

A third said that they would view a career in a small business as a positive choice over a faceless multinational, while 23 per cent would be happy enough to join an SME if they couldn’t get a job with a better-known employer.

But the largest percentage (36 per cent) said they didn’t know what an SME was.
