Press Release Summary: A new community based graduate careers site offers job seekers in the UK a chance to help each other take on big city recruiters.
Press Release Body: Exasperated with bullying recruitment consultants, incompetent careers advisers and the lack of useful online information for job seekers, two University of Manchester graduates have set up an unconventional new careers website - just for graduates!
WikiJob.co.uk is a community that lets graduates help other graduates online, by contributing information about their experiences of recruitment processes at some of the UK's best known graduate employers. Job seekers can find specific details about interviews, application procedures and assessment days at companies such as PwC, Deloitte and Goldman Sachs.
"Starting the site hasn't been easy" says Ed, Ex-English graduate and founder of WikiJob. "It has taken us a long time to find the sources for such comprehensive information, but now we're really starting to get somewhere"! According to WikiJob partners Chris Muktar and Edward Mellett, getting large graduate employers to help has gone surprisingly well. "Top UK employers have been calling us and offering to help provide information to the site", says Chris. "People have really started to take notice of the hard work we've put in. It's unbelievable"!
Essentially WikiJob helps graduate recruiters as much as it helps graduates, which is why they are so keen to get involved. By demystifying the recruitment process and offering frank information about what careers at graduate employers will really be like, only the best candidates tend to apply for each job. Consequently, the applications companies receive from WikiJob users tend to be exactly what they're looking for.
Equally WikiJob helps graduates to find out what it's really like to work at certain companies, so that graduates can find out exactly what they want to do, and focus on applying for the jobs they really want from day one.
Wikijob.co.uk was founded in 2007 to provide a community resource for graduate job seekers to exchange relevant, specific and otherwise unavailable career information with other graduates. The site currently offers a range of information about the recruitment process at many top UK employers (including information on interviews and assessment days), industry profiles and a vibrant discussion forum with plans to expand further in coming months.
