TARGETjobs weekly news roundup
Hello, hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather. If you are taking a break from the sunshine then you’ve come to the right place to catch up on all the career advice we have been writing this week. But don’t worry – it’s going to be a quick round up today so you can rush off back outdoors to top up your tan.
Let me start by asking you – have you ever had to fake it? From time to time you may not be feeling your usual confident self. Worry not! We are here to tell you how to fake it in crucial situations like interviews.
Talking of interviews – have you ever had to do a video interview? Video interviewing is slowly making its way into the recruitment process for some employers. To make sure you ace these interviews, read our pointers.
- How graduate recruiters use video interviews
- And expert performance tips for Skype and video interviews to really kick things up a notch
We also went a little female-focused this week as we found out that female STEM - that is, science, technology, engineering and maths - graduates are shunning city careers. Find out what they are doing instead.
And we refreshed a slightly older piece of career advice, which is still very relevant today. How can women turn their internship into a job and into a promotion? We were privileged to have Dr Sue Black, a senior research associate at UCL, amongst many things, talk at one of our events this year. Find out what she suggests you should be doing to ensure you progress in your career.
For those following Alan on his one pound challenge, his grand total this week is £1,760.04. See how a recent graduate from Loughborough University plans to turn a £1 investment into a graduate salary in one year. http://www.myonepoundchallenge.co.uk/
Lastly, they are going, going, gone! Check out which graduate jobs are closing next week.
That’s all from me, hope you all enjoy your weekend... (ALERT: incoming motherly advice) stay cool, drink lots of water and apply that sun tan lotion J
