Finding and Using Graduate Job Sites

12th May 2016 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Graduate News and Articles

Search & Register with Job Sites – The best way to get your name out there quickly. You might get the occasional irrelevant phone call but hey isn’t it worth it if you find your perfect job. They’ll distribute or make your CV visible to 1000s of employers & agencies. Signing up to job alerts is also a great way to keep up to date with the latest vacancies. We advise that you sign up to a mixture of large generalist and smaller niche career specific ones as well as CV databases.

Include Keywords in your CV – When Recruitment Agencies & Employers search for CVs they do this largely by keywords. So it’s really important to get everything down and use as many different words as possible. eg if you’re a software engineer makesure you list everything like c++, Java etc or if you’ve rpesented mention you’ve presented using Powerpoint or Keynote.

Sign up to job alerts – some employers will work on a first come first serve basis, so applying early can be the difference between winning and losing!

Don’t make the mistake of putting your CV online and thinking the jobs will come to you. Especially within graduate recruitment you are largely going to have to go to them.

Don’t forget, in our Find Job Sites section you can search for graduate job sites by location, keyword and career sector.

With some sites such as check4jobs you can register once and get automatically registered on multiple Career sites.

Here’s some of our favourite graduate career sites:
