Where to look for Graduate Jobs

Knowing where to search for graduate opportunities can be the springboard to a successful job search.

Before you begin your search for a graduate job it is important to have an idea of what it is you would like to do next, and we can help you with that. Book a 1-2-1 appointment with us where we can help you explore your career options and help you plan your job search.

Once armed with an idea of what you want your next step to be you can begin exploring graduate opportunities, and the companies that may be looking for their next employee whether that is a local, national or international employer.

Where to look

Attend Graduate Recruitment Fairs and Employer Events

Our Graduate Recruitment and Placement Fair is a great opportunity for you to meet (and compare) employers, find out when they're recruiting and - crucially - what they're looking for. Yes, the freebies might be good but there's more than a novelty pen and branded chocolate at stake! Make a strong impression on the day and you could find yourself invited for an interview or, at least, encouraged to apply.

Social Media

Social media is the fastest growing way to look for jobs and most companies now have a significant social media presence. Using social channels you can find a lot of information about companies and their culture and a lot of companies also advertise their job vacancies there. Using your social media presence to your advantage can put you at the head of the line with graduate recruiters, so to ensure you don’t miss out on these opportunities like and follow company pages that you are interested in.

LinkedIn is probably the most useful social platform for job seekers to use as employers and recruiters may actually see your profile and approach you directly about an opportunity that fits your skills and experience. LinkedIn also has its own job search facility and suggests jobs that may be a good fit for you.

LinkedIn is probably the most useful social platform for graduate job seekers to use as you can network with people, including recruiters, within the an organisation, who can inturn view your profile to see your skills, qualifications and experience.

Top tip: If you're going to use social media in your job search be sure to check what information you allow others to see about you and make sure you hide any photos from your nights out during Freshers Week. You can also get advice on creating your LinkedIn profile in one of our CV and Applications appointments.

Recruitment Agencies

Registering with recruitment agencies can be a great place to start with your graduate job search, and many top employers use their services to fill vacancies. 

If you're looking for graduate job opportunities in specialist industries, such as engineering and teaching, then find out who the main recruitment agencies are for that industry and register with them to see if they have any opportunities for you. This will allow you to have a much more focused search area and give you a greater understanding of the employers in your chosen field.

The Media

The media remains a massive source of information for graduate job vacancies, with many national publications being a rich hunting ground.

The Guardian JobsTES (Times Educational Supplement) are great examples.

Your personal and professional network

Suprisingly, a large number of vacancies are still filled through word-of-mouth. Let your friends and family members know that you are looking for jobs and see if they, or their contacts, may be able to help you with current or upcoming opportunities.

If your degree route has included a placement, a year out in industry or any employer interaction utilise the contacts you made and make sure that they know that you are interested in a further opportunities. Never assume that they will automatically consider you.
