Here are the #HottestjobsintheWorld, the most popular jobs from the last 7 days. This week we've got a range of roles and schemes for graduates from a range of degree backgrounds. I like to ensure that our graduate users get to see the best possible opportunities and can see what everyone else has been applying to. If you think that because everyone else is applying to these roles you shouldn't bother, you'd be wrong. Many of the jobs that have made the list are not individual placements, but the companies are taking on a handful of graduates, so have faith and get your applications ready...
