    This was a one-day AGCAS event, in partnership with GTI Media and STEP aimed at making smaller businesses a positive career choice with students and graduates.

    We know that only around 15% of the permanent jobs that new graduates enter each year are with 'big brand' recruiters. This event looked at practical ways to make smaller businesses a credible, attractive and distinctive career option for students and graduates - to promote them as a positive career choice, not a fall-back.

    The aims of The Graduates into Smaller Businesses Conference were to:

         •  make smaller businesses a positive choice with students;
         •  raise the profile of smaller businesses on campus;  
         •  engage better with smaller businesses to make opportunities more regularly available;
         •  devise practical strategies to sell the benefits of smaller businesses to students;  
         •  hear what students and recent graduates think about smaller businesses; 
         •  hear how smaller businesses have benefitted from employing graduates or
             placement students.
