ABSTRACT
The author probes into the effects of cutting graduate placements as a means to save costs. Employers in Great Britain should not rely on such initiative and be wary of impending shortage of managerial job candidates, says the author. It is stated that the termination of graduate recruitment programs would be damaging to the employers as well as to the job market. The news on increasing unemployment rate has been causing distress among graduates, she adds.
