Get the best in professional career support from Personal Career Management

There is no doubt this is the most challenging job market for many years with an estimated 48 students chasing each job. For years, senior managers in the know have been using specialist career coaches to help them secure their next role. Career management is about being clear and focused regarding your next role and having a self marketing strategy that puts you ahead of the competition. This year we’ve chosen the UK’s leading career management experts, Personal Career Management to lend their inside knowledge and advice to graduates at this year’s careers fairs.

Corinne Mills is MD of Personal Career Management and shares some tips for this year’s graduates:

“With so many graduates to choose from employers are looking beyond the degree result itself. When you apply for a role you’re selling yourself as a complete package and need to understand that it’s not just what you have done in the past, it’s what you can do for the employer and their organisation. You have to show you’re a good match. Treat your job search campaign like a final year project. Go the extra mile and research the companies you apply to. Finally, keep in mind, for employers at a Career Fair – your interview started when you walked in the hall”.
