TARGETjobs career advice weekly roundup




Hello, it’s that time of the week again for me to tell you what we've been reporting in this past week on all things to do with graduate recruitment. 

As always I am going to start this week's roundup with next week's graduate job and internship deadlines.




So, calling all graduates, you've had a month or two of winding down after the stress of your last exam and now you're in the perfect frame of mind to start focusing on kick-starting your career. For next week's graduate job deadlines look no further, check out our article here.

It might already be July, but that doesn't mean it's too late to apply for internships and work experience. Deadlines for a host of internships available through ScotGrad and Step are fast approaching. Internships are a great opportunity to find out if you like working in a particular area, get some all-important experience. Check out the internships available here.

Now, onto career advice.
