So I sat down one day and thought ‘what did I really need to know when I was applying for my first graduate job?’
I realised then that there are millions of graduates around the world each year who are as unprepared for their first job search as I was back then.
That is why this website exists. I want to help you be better prepared for your graduate job search. This site has been designed to help you land your first job.
Follow the easy steps outlined here:
- Understand yourself: your core values

- Make a good impression by describing your soft and hard skills
