Wish You Were Here: Make your company stand out to new grads

Research from TMP Worldwide has tapped into what new grads want from a job. Despite the recession and a corporate environment where layoffs abound, "just lucky to have a job" is not an attitude young workers appear willing to take. On new grads' list of "never, ever will I ever" job points, according to the survey:

71% won’t compromise on training.
52% won’t accept a job with poor work-life balance.
31% refuse to accept a lower starting salary.
33% would not relocate for a job.
