Tips for Finding a Job After Uni

Finding a job immediately after uni, especially in the field you've just studied in, can sometimes be challenging. As someone who has already gone through it, I will give you some of my top tips for finding a job:

1. Look at job sites religiously

My favorites are , The Guardian's job section and Spotlight Recruitment (which is best for those who are looking for a job in marketing). Find specific key words you want for your job search like "entry level" or "full time" and keep checking to see if they have added anything you would be able to do.

2. Apply to most jobs that fit your criteria

Obviously, don't apply to a job that asks for 10+ years of experience if you only have 2, but if you think you can do the job, apply. The company will weed you out if they don't feel you are appropriate. And who knows? Someone might take a chance on you!

3. Don't waste down time

If you can't find a job right away that fits what you want to do, you can always take a job in a field closely related maybe one that's not related at all just to earn some money (such as working in a shop or restaurant). Continue looking for a new job during this time. If you're working a non-career job while looking for something that fits your degree, consider volunteering in your field to make connections and learn new skills.

4. See everything as an opportunity

If you're working a non-career job or outside your field while you are looking for something more appropriate, find ways to apply the skills you have learned in your degree to take initiative, be inventive and learn new skills that can be used in your next job. If you're having trouble finding a job and you're financially okay to wait until you can find one in your field, consider taking a class to add even more skills to your CV and to make connections with others doing the same thing you are.

5. Look as soon as possible

If you're graduating this summer, it's not too early to start looking for a job. If they love you enough and feel you fit the role well, some companies will wait for you to graduate. Other times, it may just take that long to find a suitable role.

6. Polish your CV/resume

Make sure your CV/resume accurately reflects you and allows you to put your best foot forward in the pre-interview process. Don't allow someone to write you off for a poor CV. Head to Spotlight Recruitment to learn more about how to make your CV look impressive and get tips on what to do once you land that interview.

7. Don't be afraid to try something new

Although it may be scary for some people, you may want to consider moving to another part of the country. This can open up opportunities you weren't expecting and can truly push you out of your comfort zone.
