University of Glasgow Tips for Job Hunt   

As per University of Glasgow Careers Team, there are four ways to get a good graduate job suggested for fresh graduates: 

1. Apply for vacancies

For a preferred job type based on the interest of the graduate this is the first step. But there are two main limitations with this step: 

  • Applicants must know that they are probably always competing against many other candidates applying for a similar job profile. 
  • Graduates must keep an eye because only a few organisations advertise their vacancies online. 

If applicants are keen to work for specific organisations, they can look online on their websites regularly to check for recruitment related updates.

  • Reach out to their friends and colleagues and seek their ideas.
