Debut x ISE Student Report:

What do student jobseekers actually want?

About the report

Students are raring to get going, with 94% excited to start working despite the pandemic. Although pessimism over finding work is high, determination to find the right role is higher, with 42% confident that they’ll find the job they wanted. Aside from the pandemic, our study reveals what young job seekers really want in terms of communication and what’s important to them when looking at an organisation and the recruitment process.

Covid-19 will change how employers should target and speak to a range of student communities. This report demonstrates that students still want a blend of information, how to do well in the selection process and what the work is really like.
