Hi everyone,


Welcome back to TJBloggers for this week's weekly roundup post!  Like usual I have some great career advice for you.








To start of the weekly roundup here are the upcoming graduate job and internship deadlines: 

If you're keen to get cracking on your job hunt after the summer break then you're in the right place.

But if any of these vacancies catch your eye you'll have to be quick - they've all got deadlines coming up fast. Click here to apply today.

This week is your last chance to apply for a number of paid roles through ScotGrad. These work placements last between three months and a year and are a fantastic way to get some valuable work experience under your belt. Apply here today. 

Now, onto our weekly career advice

Female first year students are much less confident than their male peers about landing an internship or a place on a vacation programme, according to a survey of more than 1,500 undergraduates from 70 universities carried out by TARGETjobs. Have a read of our article 'Female first years less confident about work experience'.

All sorts of companies run HR graduate programmes, including the top employers in sectors such as retail, healthcare, construction and engineering. Find out here which employers offer HR graduate schemes.

Graduate schemes and internships at investment banks can all look pretty similar at first glance. How do you convince, say, Goldman Sachs that you'd prefer to work for them than J.P. Morgan or Deutsche Bank? Have a read of our article 'Why have you decided to apply to us?'. 

One of the best ways to launch your legal career is to speak to law firms’ representatives at your campus law fair – that’s what graduate recruiters consistently tell TARGETjobs Law when we interview them. During the autumn term, law fairs give you the chance to meet recruiters and trainees, and start your relationship with law firms. Let us share with you our six ways to impress those firms at your law fair.

That's all from me this week!
Good luck with your applications
