IBISWorld gives students an edge in job interviews

You may have already used IBIS World to find industry information such as trends, forecasts and statistics – but did you know that it might also help you in preparing for an interview?

Companies always like to see applicants who have done their research, and we think that IBIS World gives a really good overview of the most important issues facing your industry today.

Find out key trends (useful for interview questions), the biggest companies, operating conditions (good for ideas on the challenges faced by the industry) and different types of roles available in the industry (to help with career planning).  Each report includes the value of the industry in the UK and the number of employees. You can see if there are lots of smaller businesses, or whether the industry is dominated by a few key players.  There are also a full set of Brexit Impact Statements – just in case that question comes up too!

So if you’re thinking about working in the Arts, Construction, Beauty, Catering or Finance, these short reports will make sure you have a comprehensive overview of your industry.
