How to find an exciting graduate role in a changing market


Wednesday, 20 January 2021
12:30 – 13:30

Graduate schemes are not the only route to a great career. Most graduates, in fact about 80% of them, go onto rewarding, successful careers without graduate schemes. This session will help you find these roles. We will cover the steps to searching for and gaining a direct-hire graduate job including the timeline. We will also review considerations for broadening your job search to include stepping stones towards your ultimate career or how to find exciting alternatives you may not have considered (developing a great plan B vs a last-minute Plan B) to help you address a changed market. Finally, we will cover how to re-position transferable skills to support a job search with more than one route.

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  1. Understand what a direct hire graduate role is and have an approach to identifying the job opportunities in the current market that meet their career goals
  2. Know the basic steps to gain these roles including timings and potential changes needed to their application documents
  3. Given the current market dynamics, consider how to broaden their job search and recognize stepping stones to their ultimate role or new alternatives as part of their job search. 
  4. Identify the transferable skills and knowledge they have to take more than one career route
