TARGETjobs News roundup

Hi, it’s Laura taking over the blog today. It’s that time of week again when we bring you the latest career news, job advice and deadlines.

This week at TARGETjobs we've been having a bit of a property burst. Before you apply to your chosen firms, be sure to read our advice on writing a property-specific CV. We've also got handy application form advice and essential interview tips to close the deal on your graduate property job.

We’re always advising you to show off your skills and achievements to their maximum potential, but if you’re the kind of person who feels uncomfortable at the very thought of that, we've had a brainstorm on how to sell yourself if you’re a shy job hunter. Make sure you read our key tips before sending off those applications.

Looking for the latest salary and job location info? We've summarised the results of the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) survey to give you an idea of where you might find employment and the salary you can expect when you graduate.

Have you been following the One Pound Challenge? Check out how Loughborough graduate Alan Radbourne has been getting on in his £1 business investment project.

And if you've been inspired by Alan’s challenge, have a look at our advice on becoming an entrepreneur when you graduate.

Finally, a reminder about the graduate application deadlines coming up over the next week, in sectors including management, HR and IT. Don’t miss out.


After all that news, we can be glad it’s Friday! Have a good weekend, everyone.
