Graduates blog

A blog changing moment

Created 03/08/2011 14:56 Last updated 22/11/2017 05:08

Laura Smith takes over the Graduates Yorkshire blog....



When I hit ‘Publish’ on a blog post I wrote last week I had no idea what result it would have. I imagined, due to the polite request for readers to pass on the post, it may accumulate slightly higher readership than that of my average.  However, I wasn’t holding out for anything spectacular. I checked it had uploaded onto my site and shut down my laptop to join my housemates downstairs.

It’s that time of year again and The National Online Recruitment Awards 2011 nominations are now open.  Last year we were delighted to win Best Regional Job Board, it was great to put Yorkshire on the map as the previous years had been dominated by one winner.  This year we would like to go for the double!

Don’t be another CV

Created 25/07/2011 16:07 Last updated 05/10/2017 05:48

 

Here at Graduates Yorkshire we regularly keep-up-to date with employers to find out about the applications they receive.  One of the biggest comments we’ve had recently is that too many of you guys are sending in generic applications.  One important rule to remember when applying is don’t ‘spray and pray’ – send targeted and tailored covering letters and CVs, making sure they are relevant to the job you’re applying for.

We always like to keep our ear to the ground about the latest developments regarding graduates in the region.  That’s why we decided to commission The Big Graduate Survey.  Answered by over 1000 graduates it is a large style census determined to find out a wealth of information about Yorkshire.  It captured aspects of community, employment, enterprise and leisure time from people who have lived, worked and studied in Yorkshire.

Carli, a Marketing & Public Relations graduate, gives us her spin on The Graduate Employment Conference 2011.

 


As a graduate we are often bombarded with information with what we need to be doing in order to bag ourselves a job after we graduate. Events such as The Graduate Employability Conference are fantastic to attend as they give a chance to talk to the people who will be recruiting you, to get inside tips and make some valuable connections. For those you who couldn't make it, here are my top 10 tips from the day...
