The TARGETjobs Weekly Career Advice Roundup



Hello and welcome to our weekly career advice roundup blog. This has been an exciting week for us as it marks the start of fair season. For the next three months our four event executives will be touring the UK visiting freshers’ fairs and careers’ fairs, coming to talk to you about starting your career, giving out our hot-off-the-press career publications and signing you up to our new-look site. This way you can start to receive our ‘How to Get Hired’ and daily job alerts emails.



We love to meet with students, talk face to face about your concerns and career dreams so please pop along to your freshers’/careers fair and come and say hello to our very friendly team. Want to meet them? Check out our Facebook album where every week we will keep you updated on their latest whereabouts. 

Talking of fairs, for those of you planning on going to careers fairs this autumn, make sure you make the most of them. These fairs are a great place to network with employers and make your first impression count. So make good use of them.
And what better way to leave a good first impression than dressing to impress and being prepared. We are here to tell how to do both.  

On a more sector-specific note:

 Calling all aspiring solicitors and future barristers: make sure you read this advice before heading to your campus law fairs this autumn. 

 If you are specifically interested in retail management, we’ve got some great advice for you on how to show recruiters you’d be perfect for the role.

 Is construction your passion? Read about four ways to get your foot in the door in the construction, civil engineering or quantity surveying industry. 

And if healthcare is your career path of choice then you’ll be interested to know that for the third year running, the NHS has topped The Guardian UK 300 poll, as the top graduate employer to work for. 

     Closing business:

As usual we update you on Alan Radbourne’s One Pound Challenge grand total after 16 weeks. It’s a whooping £5,537.22 Find his latest news here.

Hope you all have an enjoyable weekend, Jackie J
