Find graduate jobs

What are the different types of graduate jobs available to me?

The most discussed and sought after graduate jobs are the graduate schemes (/grad scheme) which are typically hosted by larger companies and tend to attract around 80 applications per vacancy. They last from 18 to 36 months and follow a structured course which is designed to develop your skill set and steadily increase your exposure to the industry and responsibility. 

BUT graduate schemes are not the only place to find graduate job opportunities available to students. SMEs account for 60% of all employment in the UK so they are not to be overlooked.
