Job Seeking Graduate? – Some top tips

Remember that you have demonstrated commitment by gaining your degree. Remember also that the degree you gain, might not be within the subject area you end up working in. Unless the degree that you undertake is vocational, like Teaching or Nursing etc, the degree is more a testament to
your personal endeavours than your overall knowledge on the subject you studied. For example, you are not an expert in working in Finance, just because you studied Accountancy. However translating that onto your CV is hard going. CVs are read by employers and agencies, within 5-10 seconds. Key words and skills are picked out (or not) and you are put to the side or on top of the pile within a minute.

Remember your degree and the quality of writing you produced, and the dissertation you spent night after night producing. Your CV is just as important as that. People say, “get me in front of that business for an interview and I will get that job!”, well I say, make your CV the best you can possibly can , and at least you will have a chance. This is where the internship that you gained, the work experience that you begged for, the uncle that you asked to help out in the office, the call centre job that you took, the data-entry office role that you did in the Summer, the advice you gained from the CEO and the time you then took on your CV will come into its’ own. By demonstrating commitment in gaining the key work skills and experience that you need, you are half way there…now for the interview!
