Congratulations! You’ve earnt your degree and your time at university has come to an end. Since graduating, you’ve probably been thinking about your next steps and your graduate career. However, navigating your graduate job search can be stressful if you are unsure of your career path. In this post, we will provide help for graduates looking for work.
Why graduates need help looking for work
Most graduates have gone through their entire academic career without getting adequate careers advice. Even if you visited your university’s career service a few times, you may still find yourself struggling to find a job after university.
The graduate job search is multi-faceted. There are many factors to take into consideration such as:
- Working out what type of graduate job is right for you
- Identifying your employability skills
- Understanding what graduate employers are looking for
- Assessing your work experiences
- Crafting an achievement-based graduate CV
- Optimising your Linkedin profile and other social media profiles
- Writing effective cover letters
- Sending out high-quality job applications
- Performing highly in interviews
Many graduates are unaware that there is help available to help them to land their dream graduate job.
Over the years we have helped hundreds of graduates who have come to us after realising that:
- It has been 1 year or more since graduating and they haven’t found a job
- They keep failing at interviews
- Even after doing a master’s they can’t get a job
- They haven’t got a clue about what to do after university
