Top 10 Universities for Employability in 2018-2019. What’s do you think is the best university name in the world to put on your job application? Well, this question has been questioned out to employers who were asked where they recruit their most competent, innovative and effective graduates. Students Today are Competing for every Job. One Human Resources Manager has said that universities which have big global research reputations are not necessarily “those that do most to nurture student employability”. And the cost of tuition fees and a competitive jobs market meant that students were increasingly concerned about the likelihood that their prospective university will help them thrive afterward. The rankings also take into account employment statistics for former students, where high-flying graduates in top jobs studied and the range of partnerships between universities and employers.
