Graduate Looking for work

Graduates, Let us start at the beginning.

Ask yourself the following:

Do you have a CV written and updated fully?

If not check out our blog on creating a perfect CV

Do you have a cover letter? Do not forget this will need to be tailored to the role you’re applying for. Check out our blog for further advice on this.

What sort of work is it you are looking for and what industry are you wanting to work in? Is your LinkedIn profile up to date and mirroring your CV? Ensure all your social media privacy settings are in check.

The main reason for this will be that potential employees will check you out on all platforms to see what sort of things you share, how you speak to peers. So, if you do not want them spying on you and finding something you do not want them to – update the settings to private. Check out our blog on how to do this on multiple platforms to keep your information to yourself.

What is next Graduate?

You will have career advisors on site ready to help.

Next stage, if you know the firm you want to join review their details on line and what schemes or roles, they have available.

Do not forget to tell your friends and family you are searching they might know of employers to approach. Add it to all your social media so you reach a larger audience. There are also lots of job groups on Facebook for your area. Search for groups like jobs in Northamptonshire, Jobs in Milton Keynes, Admin jobs etc. The list is endless.

Job Boards

Check out job sites like Find a job. This is a government run job board so attracts a lot of businesses of all sizes. You can apply directly through this site to the employer. Recommend you take a print out of the jobs you apply for so you can keep track if anyone is to contact you, you can find the job spec quickly without having the awkward moment of erm what job is this relating to?
