Graduate Panic in Finding First Job

Survey reveals Graduates panic when it comes to finding their first job

An incredible 70 per cent of students feel overwhelmed by job hunting for their first job after graduation according to a new survey.

The results from student social networking site Kloodle also reveal just 18 per cent of graduates feel informed about how to go about finding their first job, while a worrying one in three say the stress of securing that vital first post gets in the way of studying for exams.

Confusion among graduates about where to find their first job and what skills employers expect them to demonstrate are common. We’re always happy to offer job seeking advice to university students, and we recently supported the Graduate Careers Fair at Keele where we were on hand to answer any queries and inform them about the job opportunities available here in Staffordshire.

Nationally things are looking very positive for students, with graduate unemployment now at its lowest level since 2008 but securing the job you want still depends on students making themselves employable by gaining work experience while studying, preparing an excellent CV and covering letter and having a strategy as to where those jobs exist and are likely to be advertised.

Research and preparation are always key to any successful job hunt and subsequent application.
