Last minute planning #catsandcareers No 2

Mack was busy revising for his exams and found a copy of the Times Top 100 he had picked up in October, untouched and gathering dust on the shelf.

Never one to to miss an opportunity to procrastinate Mack started investigating graduate employers with enthusiasm.

Mack was horrified to see that the closing dates for many of the graduate schemes listed had passed. It quite put him off his katnip!

He was somewhat relieved to find out however, that there are loads of prime jobs available on the Careers Service vacancy database careerslink.   He set himself up a job agent pronto so that he could receive email alerts for new vacancies and curled up for a nap to recover from the stress.

If you haven’t got a job or course lined up for next year there is still time.

  • Use resources like the Times Top 100, Prospects Directory and Target Jobs – Get Directory to find out about the big graduate schemes with popular recruiters
  • Use Careerslink – to find current vacancies and gradauate schemes with the above recruiters plus local companies and those that are specifically looking for Manchester Graduates.
  • For some jobs recruiters will have their own ways of advertising – through particular recruitment agencies, periodicals, professional press or just on their own websites.  Our sector pages will help you find out about where jobs are advertised.
  • Check out who is attending the Graduate Recruitment Fair in June – the list of exhibitors for both days is now up.  Even if you can’t attend you can still find out online what they are recruiting for and put in an application.

We still have some graduate directories left for this year if you want to pick one up.  Next years will arrive September / October time.

The Careers Service is open all summer so you can still use us after you graduate.
