TARGETjobs career advice roundup

Happy Saturday career-seekers: this is the TARGETjobs weekly career advice roundup. We've got all the tips and hints you’ll need to make the most of your job opportunities.

But let’s start with an apology: I’m sorry we missed the career roundup last week, but the good news is that this roundup is absolutely packed with useful articles.

First up, are you thinking of a career in education technology? If so, then RM Education could be the company for you. You’ll need to know how to answer their question on your communication skills. 

Next, we’ve got some advice on the construction sector:
Are you thinking of applying for a graduate job with Mercer? If so, you need to know these five things about the application process.

If you get past the Mercer application process, your next challenge will be the graduate assessment centre. Luckily for you, we have all the details on the assessment process here. 

We’d also like to tell you about two huge opportunities for any aspiring solicitors out there:
  • Aspiring trainee solicitors can improve their chances of getting a training contract or vacation scheme by attending a TARGETjobs Law How to Get Hired workshop at Durham, Warwick, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester and Southampton Universities in early 2014. Leading law firms including Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, White & Case, Osborne Clark and Dentons will give workshops to help students improve their applications and interview skills.
  • Clifford Chance is offering a different way for students to secure a vacation scheme place: an essay competition. Deadlines close for the ‘Intelligent Aid’ competition on 31 January and the firm hopes to attract students who might not otherwise have considered applying for work experience with the magic circle firm.

We also have an exciting internal announcement: TARGETjobs has just joined forces with Inside Buzz to bring you the most complete view of a company.  Soon Inside Buzz reviews will be available on our employer hubs, alongside our employer profiles and company insights. If you’re jobhunting, why go elsewhere? We’ve got it all here on TARGETjobs. 

As usual, we have all of our upcoming jobs deadlines here for you too. 


Have an excellent weekend.
