Tough graduate job interviews.

SELECTION procedures for graduates are being made more rigorous by employers.

However, a report by publisher GTI says the financial rewards are better than ever.

A survey of 500 firms showed they were increasingly likely to ask graduates to show if they had essential skills during job interviews.

More than one in three companies ask graduates to give a presentation to an interview panel.

GTI says graduates are reaping greater rewards, with starting salaries up by pounds 3,000 to pounds 18,900, rising by 13% to pounds 23,000 at the top end of the scale.

More firms are offering graduates an annual bonus, golden hellos and share options.
