According to a recent survey conducted by business services provider Iconnyx, the vast majority of graduate jobseekers are overlooking job opportunities within small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs), despite the clear benefits to working within these organisations.

The study was conducted across thirty recruitment consultancies in the UK and found that just 3% of these agencies believed that graduates favoured smaller organisations over larger companies.

“What a lot of graduates don’t realise is that gaining employment within an SME can often be more beneficial to their careers," FDM Group Marketing Manager, Nabila Salem, said.

In addition, a whopping 68% of the graduates questioned for the Iconnyx survey stated that they would take the first job role offered to them, rather than the right one.
