The problem with relying on statistics to prove a point is that it’s always possible to find a statistic to back up any given point you want to make. However, I couldn’t help but smile when reading www.graduate-jobs.com recent survey where lo and behold it was found that “the lower the number of job applications students have made, the more likely they are to have succeeded in securing invitations to interviews“. So, fewer better quality applications seem to work more than more poorer quality ones. Which is your approach at the moment? And are you prepared to change it if it isn’t working?
