TARGETjobs Careers Round-up January 2015

Hello everyone! 

This week I wanted to start off the round-up post with some news updates. As you all may know from various social posts, TARGETjobs undergraduate of the year awards event has started. There are numerous categories to enter into (please see website here) and the lucky winners will be given the opportunity of a career changing internship with a big name recruiter. 

This year we have decided to create two new awards... 

If you think you could win this year's Undergraduate of the year award, enter today!

Now, onto careers advice...
If you're looking to kick-start your career with a big name recruiter, take a look at this week's upcoming graduate job deadlines.


TARGETjobs Law has put together its weekly update of useful law deadlines and news for graduates. Both aspiring solicitors and barristers will feel the need to read this week’s update as we run down the upcoming deadlines and bring you the legal recruitment events that are happening in universities and towns near you. If that wasn’t enough, keep on top of your commercial awareness with how Charlie Hebdo is seen in law around the world, the nine-year-old boy who’s petitioning parliament and QCs in the news. 

The TARGETjobs Law National Pupillage fair takes place on Saturday 7 March 2015. There’s no other careers event of its kind that caters for aspiring barristers and those still considering the pros and cons of both the barristers’ and solicitors’ professions. Come down and meet chambers’ representatives face to face, get essential advice on making your pupillage application and listen to panels of barristers offer their unique insights into different areas of law in the talks programme. If that hasn’t persuaded you, check out our article on six of the best reasons to get down to the TARGETjobs Law National Pupillage Fair. 

Whether you're trying to turn your internship into a graduate job offer or climb the career ladder in a permanent job, know how to increase your chances of success.. Have a read of our article 'Career tactics for women: from internship to job to promotion.'
