University of Hertfordshire’s helping hand for graduates

ARE you a graduate living or working in the county and need help to manage your career out of the recession?

If so, time is running out to apply to the University of Hertfordshire for free support.

The Hatfield-based uni is working with the Government to provide help through the Economic Challenge Investment Fund (ECIF).

The Fund helps jobless graduates or those at risk of unemployment to get their careers back on track following the challenging economic climate.

The ECIF helps by supporting them to start their own business, change career direction or to gain better skills.
