Careers Advice Service offers graduate job hunters guidance
Thursday, 14 January 2010
Graduate job hunters needing some guidance on what path to take for their careers have been given some advice by the Careers Advice Service.
The organisation has prioritised five steps for those at a crossroads in terms of the direction their life is heading.
Identifying priorities and goals is labelled as a good starting point, while graduates are additionally told to review their skills and interests, alongside remaining focussed and confident.
Meanwhile, doing research into a chosen industry is also key, with Julie Clare, a careers coach at the Careers Advice Service, highlighting that people need to consider a role to suit their own tastes and fashions.
She said: "It's quite nerve-wracking when you start thinking about all the jobs that are out there. Gaining some direction is invaluable.
"It's not just about what you can do, it's what you want to do that matters. It's really important that you try to find a role that will be satisfying and fulfilling."
A poll of over 220,000 students last August discovered that the number of students satisfied with their degree courses had fallen for the first time in five years.
