"Gradsouthwest has been integral to our success in placing hundreds of graduates in Cornwall. The site allows us to cast a wider net to fish for graduates who have studied further afield and have a broader set of degree disciplines available than our local graduates. Gradsouthwest offers an excellent targeting service which benefits from their broad data set."
