It’s a tough market out there, and for graduates in particular it can be difficult to secure the dream job when at the start of their career. It’s important graduates make the right choices from the start when finding their first job, so how can graduates get ahead in the game?

Be confident! It can be an anxious time when entering the job market, but confidence is key. Be polite, engaging, and get your personality across.

Let’s talk about social media. Make sure your social media profiles are appropriate for potential employers to view, as recently more often than not hiring managers will check your profile as part of the hiring process and the practice is becoming more standard.

Have the right attitude. It seems obvious, but a potential employer will want to hire someone positive, motivated and excited about entering the workplace. Skills to perform a job can be learnt, but the right attitude from the start is vital for employers.

Offer a sneak preview. Can you offer to work on a temporary basis to start, or agree to a trial period before a decision is made? The more flexibility you can offer, the more chance you’ll have at succeeding.

We are currently recruiting for graduate vacancies. To find out more, contact FS1 on 01908 787 560 or hello@fs1recruitment.com.
