Top 5 Tips for New Graduates

Become more employable
The job market is pretty competitive at the moment and there are no signs of that changing in the near future anyhow. Therefore in order to give yourself the best chance at staying ahead of the competition, you need to make yourself as “employable” as possible. Whether that means undertaking further studies, developing specific skills or widening the scope of your experience, it has to be done if you are going to be deemed a viable candidate by any prospective employer. Showing a willingness to keep developing your skills and improving yourself will certainly go to your advantage. For some more tips on improving your employability, check out our previous posts here and here.

Consider Entrepreneurship
The challenging job market of course has meant that there has been a distinct rise in entrepreneurship where people who cannot find a job, aim to try and create one for themselves. If you feel that you have the enterprising spirit to go it alone, then now could be the best time to do it. There are many support schemes geared specifically at entrepreneurial young people such as the Princes Trust Enterprise Programme for example where you can gain financial support and backing for your business idea.  Many universities also have accelerator programmes and incubation centres which you can join in order to get the proper support to transform your idea into a proper tangible business. Check with your university and local enterprise centre to see what support, both financial and otherwise may be available to you.
