Finance tips for those seeking graduate jobs

Life after graduation
Those in the market for graduate jobs should also take the time to get their finances in order, according to one expert.
According to Darren Cook, head of press and PR for Moneyfacts.co.uk, if students take the time to shop around for the best graduate savings account they can find, they could save money.
He said: "Graduates will often remain loyal to their student account provider. However, as long as you have proof of qualification and have managed your account within your agreed overdraft limit, there is no reason why you shouldn't switch to a better deal."
Once someone starts work in a graduate role, they should make sure they draw up a budget and stick to it, he added.
People should not rush to pay off their student loan, as this attracts a low rate of interest, Mr Cook pointed out.
Yesterday, Annabel Brodie-Smith, AIC communications director, claimed students are looking for high paid gradate jobs to help them tackle the debt they have built up while studying.
