A Guide for Students and Graduates

Entering the job market as a university student or recent graduate in the UK can be both exhilarating and daunting. Especially in current times. So we want to stand with you to help you get more from your degree, and equip you with the right tools and skills to stand out from the competition. 

In this guide, we’ll walk you through essential tips and advice to help you navigate the job market successfully. 

1. Embrace Internships and Work Placements

Gaining practical experience through internships or work placements is the best way to build your skills, enhance your resume, and explore potential career paths. 

Internships and project work can be a stepping stone to a full-time position. Moreover, internships provide a chance to assess the company culture and determine if it aligns with your values and aspirations. Don’t worry though, as these opportunities don’t have to come at a sacrifice – all jobs on Unibeez pay at least the living wage of £12/hr.

2. Develop a Strong Online Presence and CV

In today’s digital age, having a strong online presence is essential. It’s no coincidence that Unibeez helps you tailor your online profile, ensuring it is concise and highlights relevant skills, experiences, and accomplishments for each job opportunity. 

Profiles are also exportable, so you can flex on other hirers however you choose 💅🏽💅🏽💅🏽

3. Network, Network, Network!

Networking is a powerful tool that can open doors to unexpected opportunities. Attend industry events, join professional associations, and engage with alumni networks to connect with like-minded individuals. 

Remember, relationships are built on mutual respect and genuine interest, so approach networking as a chance to learn and share knowledge, rather than solely for personal gain.

4. Stay Resilient and Persistent

Job hunting can be challenging, and rejection is a part of the process. Stay resilient and don’t be disheartened by setbacks. Learn from each experience and use it as motivation to improve your approach. Keep a positive mindset and remember that the right opportunity will come your way with patience and persistence.

In conclusion, we suggest gaining as much experience as you can get, from DAY 1 of university. Shout about all your achievements and don’t underestimate the power of connections. Meet as many people, employers, and relevant people as you can. 

Good luck, and we’re always here to help.
