Next step to finding a graduate job

Once you have these questions answered and completed, I would say your ducks are in a row to start the search.

Once registered with us we will share any graduate roles that we currently have that you are suitable for. At this point we would ask you to review the job specs and advise if you want to be put forward. Once we have your permission to share your CV, we will get to work sending this to our clients. If you are of interest to them, they will offer an interview and we start the process. We will of cause set you up with an interview prep with one of our consultants. They will go through what to expect at interview and help you feel fully prepared for the Graduate Job you have applied for.

You could look elsewhere for a graduate job:

Review jobs/schemes on your university jobs board as a good starting point. Remember all the firms advertising have come to your university, they could be interested in YOU!

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.

Don’t forget to tell your friends and family you’re 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.

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?

Reed jobs board offers some amazing opportunities. You can upload your CV to Reed and then employers can find you this way. You can search for jobs and apply directly again. Reed is a service that is free to candidates but employers pay for the privileged to search for CV’s and to advertise their roles so they really do want to find the best for the money here.
