Jesse Young CEO of PerDM Asks, "With University Places at a Premium, Where do the Next Generation Start Their Working Lives?"

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2010) - PerDM's Jesse Young questions the previous government's declaration "education, education, education". With an unprecedented number of applications for University places and an unprecedented level of unsuccessful applicants the UK is facing up to a failure to provide education for its youth. "Despite the previous government's promise of "education, education, education", we are coming to terms with high unemployment across a broad social sector in the young school leavers" says Jesse Young CEO of PerDM, one of the UK's premier outsource sales organisations. "Then factor into this crisis the growing number of university graduates who are unable to find a job and this is growing incrementally each year, we have an increasing number of gifted educated young people who are disenfranchised!"

How do we cope with this crisis? What options do these kids have? Sure there are plenty of jobs out there the government tell us. It seems it is just a case of looking and being flexible.

Have the government forgotten that our economy is experiencing large scale redundancies in the public sector, downsizing in the service sector and extensive job losses in the banking and financial world? Add to this the unemployment levels among school leavers and it's not rocket science to see that the old career pathways are gradually being blocked off.

During the Thatcher years, Britain proudly boasted an unprecedented rise in entrepreneurialism and an increase in freedom of expression. The middle class expanded at its fastest rate ever in our social history. The rules were rewritten. That period spawned many new businesses in emerging sectors like the media, retail and IT.

Jesse Young of PerDM believes that the direct sales or outsource sales sector offers those graduates and students who do wish to progress rapidly and be rewarded for their efforts the best opportunities right now. "We at PerDM value entrepreneurialism and are constantly looking for energetic, intelligent candidates with good people skills and a willingness to communicate"

PerDM is one of the UK's success stories and has grown to meet the marketing needs of some the top UK brands through delivering measurable results. "Graduates or school leavers over the age of 18 have every opportunity to succeed at PerDM," says Jesse Young. "Of course outsource sales isn't everyone's cup of tea but for those who take to it there is the enticing prospect of being your own boss and ultimately running your own company"

So for those graduates or students who do want something different and want to be part of the new paradigm look no further than PerDM. The new frontier in measurable cost effective marketing.

PerDM Contact Marketing Limited was established in August 2005 in response to the UK markets' need for a field sales organisation capable of delivering high quality results with consistency and reliability.

The company was formed by a group of former UK financial services executives and senior executives from the leading North American field sales agency and since 2005 we have continually recruited leading figures from the B2C and B2B business arena.
