The immediate post-uni period is a pretty crucial one. Those who are switched on may already have graduate schemes and jobs lined up, while for others the attention may have already slipped to thoughts of the summer festival season. But your future is worth a thought, as figures released last year showed that a third of graduates were working in unskilled roles after leaving university.
Popular jobs for those in unskilled work included cleaners, office juniors and road sweepers. Probably not the dream job you had in mind when you rocked up at uni three years ago! But don’t worry! The folks at student accommodation providers Bellvue Students have put together a handy infographic highlighting some of the best tips to land yourself the ultimate graduate job.
From CV writing to sorting out your social media presence, there are a host of things you can do to make yourself more employable, and some of them are a lot easier than you might think. However, the ultimate tip that we give you right now while you’re still studying is to get your head down and get revising!
You only get one chance at your degree, and coming out with a good grade will stand you in good stead for the rest of your adult life. It’s also worth checking out your university’s careers office before you graduate, they can be really helpful at helping you evaluate your skills and figuring out what you need to do to land that dream job.
