Thousands of graduates in the UK are qualified for the job but just do not know where to look or do not know which job to apply for. There are many reasons why this is, this post is about what I personally am trying to implement to get a job that will springboard a career. The first place I looked was teaching, like many its attractive to be able to give back the education that was given to me. Having done more research many teachers financially earn more in other countries so with that in mind the areas in which I will be recommending here in the this post at Robert-Bridge.info will not be tailor made specifically, but will I hope will help you find a job as a graduate.

Adjustments in place CV is good to go but still no job or interview today
So you have a CV and you have followed the steps suggested on the various Job hunting sites, you may have even took it a step further and created a Powerpoint Presentation of the skills you have to offer but are still struggling to find a job.
With regards to the type of degree you have, how sure are you of the jobs available to you?
Perhaps you are sure, but do you really understand how to get employed in your chosen field? Do you know the normal progressive path to employment? If so and you are still struggling you might want to read on because hopefully we can all equally get that job interview.
Getting your CV noticed and even inspire you to go out and find where the telephone numbers are or where perhaps you can meet people who work within the company. These are just some hidden ways of finding un advertised jobs, remember there are many people going for the same jobs, but there are also companies that do not like asking hundreds of people to come into their office every year for an interview, to simply let you go home disillusioned or unhappy.
The key thing I understood as a blogger and someone who spends far to much unproductive time on social media is that jobs are still found via the traditional ways.
On Youtube a few months ago I showed in a video how to browse jobs on Twitter however no results or leads came from this, I enjoyed the experience and saw value in quickly finding local search jobs that require high end specific qualifications, however I have not yet seen any results from not only being found, liked and followed but actually employed.
This I think is where social media and getting employment go separate ways
Many people online are looking for real people to educate via information products and online sites that educate but I, like I assume ‘you’ are looking for employment; so the rational thing there is that face to face, conversations with the correct people who can help you find a job and therefore attract more job opportunities to you.
Magnetising your CV or job hunting profile is something that requires many different observations. From these observations not only from Job recruitment online agencies, or mixing knowledge and news from either websites, broadsheet newspapers and also local job advertisements in the area in which you reside.
If like me you have many options and have spent a long time refining your CV and still are not getting any interviews perhaps when you apply you should create a supply of different introductions as a preamble to submit your CV. Another great tip is the first three sentences if you have room on your two page CV. By creating a couple of summaries tailor made for your particular dream job. This way when of a morning when like many you are submitting your CV to Total Jobs or where ever it is you apply you will double your chances of quickly connecting with employers on a level which will increase your chance of getting called in for an interview.
You can access this hidden graduate job market by developing a campaign which does not only rely on applying to advertised jobs but uses “creative job hunting techniques”. You will need to adopt a creative, pro-active and speculative approach, and have a clear strategy for what you want to achieve and how.
