In short...

September 25, 1998

The statement that employers "restrict their recruiting to older universities" ("Power of purse used to drive skill bandwagon", THES, September 18) cannot go unchallenged.

Employers may target a relatively small number of universities for recruitment, mainly those where they have had success in the past. But targeting and actual recruitment are quite different in practice. Employers will always consider applications from graduates of universities not on their targeted list.

It is the individual graduate who is being assessed, not the university they attended.
