Get into the Xmas spirit

Ho ho ho, it's all getting a bit Christmassy in the Graduates Yorkshire office. The tree is up, Mariah Carey's on the Radio and the hot topic in the office is what to wear for the big work party Friday!

We thought we'd spread some festive cheer and have put together a playlist of all our favourite Xmas songs on Spotify. Get into the spirit in your office (and no, we don't mean the vodka) here: Merry Xmas!

If your favourite's missing let me know and we'll add it to the list!

Watch Question Time at LMU online

Earlier this month we took part in a special Question Time event at Leeds Metropolitan University. Graduates, employers and careers staff had the opportunity to ask local employers their career queries. The day was a great success with some tough questions asked and some brilliant advice shared.

The whole event was filmed so that lots more students and graduates can benefit from the event too. Check it out in full here, featuring representatives from Grant Thornton, Bettys and Taylors, the CBI and Capita Hartshead and hosted by Graduates Yorkshire's CEO Martin Edmondson.

Enjoy.

Job hunting's tough. We know, we've all been there. But as they say a problem shared is a problem halved. We'd love to find out what you're finding difficult and if there's anything we can do to help.

We also think it would be great if you guy's talked to each other, as sometimes the best tips can come from fellow jobs seekers who are in the same position as you.

Join our Facebook page and visit our discussions board. Here, you can talk to us about job hunting, making great applications and chat to fellow job seekers.
