Graduates handed employability advice
Monday, 22 February 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in business and management may be interested to hear some advice on staying employable delivered by a range of experts in a Financial Times feature.
Speaking in the paper a number of recruitment specialists give their opinion on how to make the best of existing skills and what should be done to keep ahead of the competition.
Miranda Kennett, founder of First Class Coach, recommends regular CV checks. "Rewrite your CV every year. If you can't find something new to add to it then look at yourself," she said.
Ian Pearson, a futurologist at the consultancy Futurizon, suggests graduates and other job hunters target organisations and sectors that are set to cope resiliently with the economic downturn. "There are sectors which change less and sectors which are more resilient to change," he said.
Ms Kennett added that graduate job hunters scouring the degree-level job market should have a "plan B if things go horribly wrong".
