#Apply – Enhancing your application


Don’t be daunted by the graduate job application process. Applying for jobs is a skill that can require practice, but you can master it!

We can help you to articulate your skills and turn a good application into a brilliant one!

Here are our top 3 tips to help you:

  1. Slow and steady wins the race – Don’t rush in, read through everything and make a plan. Take your time and make sure you get your application checked before clicking submit.
  2. Be specific – Talking about your skills is great. But backing them up with evidence is essential. Use the STAR technique to structure your examples.
  3. Be creative – Just because it seems like your part-time job or voluntary work isn’t related to your career aspirations, don’t dismiss it!

We can provide advice and support to help you through every stage of the recruitment process.
