According to new research from, graduates are yet to embrace mobile technologies when applying for graduate roles.

The report reveals that only one in nine (11%) of the 650+ survey respondents had applied to a graduate scheme using their mobile. Perhaps surprisingly, this percentage was exceeded by graduates who had applied for such roles by post (19%).

“Based on this research, businesses now need to ask themselves if they are doing all they can to fully optimise their application process for mobile,” says CEO Gerry Wyatt. “Only then will we know if graduates are prepared to make the leap from desktop to mobile.”

The survey also questioned graduates about their uses of social media, willingness to relocate, salary expectations and use of careers fairs.
