Graduates told to look in the right way for jobs
Monday, 10 May 2010
Using a range of methods and being dedicated in searches can improve the chances of a graduate finding a job, it has been suggested.
Writing for the Guardian, Graham Snowdon has picked the brains of some recruitment experts and highlighted 50 areas in which an individual can improve their chances of finding employment.
Alongside understanding the areas in which their own skills lie and attempting to make a CV is as good as can be, he remarks that a person should ensure they are targeting jobs correctly.
He suggests that using the internet may be a good starting point for locating jobs, with those looking for positions in the wider market potentially benefiting from setting up a Google Alert.
Meanwhile, local newspapers may highlight some opportunities that are available at smaller businesses, although graduate job hunters may not find positions on their doorsteps.
Furthermore, it is suggested that people aim both high and low and target organisations that they would particularly like to work for.
Career counsellor Cheryl Morgan recently advised job seekers that they should not let themselves down at an interview by not making an effort in terms of their appearance.
