Expert offers tips to graduate job hunters
Thursday, 29 October 2009
A recruitment expert has said that university leavers will need to improve their CVs and interview techniques if they are to find a graduate job.
Ron Daratany, president of US firm DMR Global, said that all applications should point out any work experience, internships, university activities and sports involvement that the graduate candidate has undertaken.
Then they should detail all of the soft skills gained through these means, such as perception, credibility, intelligence, teamwork, leadership and motivation, the expert wrote for the Sun Sentinel.
He added: "Students should assure their personal e-mail addresses, outgoing voicemails and online presence are professional. If not, a potential employer could perceive your lack of professionalism or attention to detail as a negative even before an interview!"
Independent design company Serif recently told Onrec.com that all unemployed Brits, including graduates, could create a personal brand which will help them stand out in the competitive market for employment.
