The degree results are arriving and graduates are looking for their first permanent roles

Look out all of us!

So, the results are coming in and 2016 graduates are starting their job search in earnest. Some will have been ahead of the game and already thought through what they want to do, and some will have secured jobs, whether in their chosen field or not. Well done all of those people!

However, thousands and thousands will not have thought any further than getting the degree and I’m not saying that’s wrong; of course after three or four years of studying, you want to make sure you give yourself the best chance of a good result. Understood, entirely!

Situation is now though, that every employer and recruiter will be receiving hundreds of graduate applications, all at the same time.

Some friends of mine who run a small PR agency in Bristol recently advised me that they were getting on average 20 applications a week! Many of them from candidates not giving them one single clue about a) why they were applying in the first place or b) why the graduate thought the company would be interested in them!

I’m talking about relevance and individuality. Let me explain.

It’s NOT okay to send a blanket email saying the same thing to 100 or so businesses in the hope that you will get an interview. It’s really not! What would be far better would be to send 20 emails and covering letters, each individually addressed and with information about you that is relevant to each business, including why you are interested in the role and what you think you can bring to the company.

And then follow them up! Whether you are applying to an advertised role or sending your details in speculatively, the fortune is in the follow up! Do that really scary thing that so many young people seem unable to do and PICK UP THE PHONE. Believe me, because so few do you will stand out immediately, in a good way.

I work mostly in the PR, creative and marketing sectors and so am receiving applications from people who want to work in the creative industries - marketing, PR, advertising, design, digital, communications. You’d think that graduates who want to work in the creative industries would be creative wouldn’t you!? I don’t mean from a design point of view, I mean from an approach point of view. I once (about 15 years ago) worked with a designer who sent me a coffee mug, in a solid box, with sugar, milk and a coffee sachet. It had his name and contact details very subtly on the bottom of the mug (which was a nice one!), and inside the mug was a very cleverly folded copy of his CV and a note saying “Have a coffee on me, some light reading for you while you take a break!”. He got the job with my client! That was a one off, sad to say!

In this digital age, it’s so very easy to just rely on email and social media to communicate. I worked in the office of a client for two days last month and honestly can tell you, the phone never rang! Not once! And I think I was the only one who made more than two outgoing calls. But the MD told me that she’d received 15 applications to an advertisement that she was running for an account executive during that two days. Not one of the candidates made a call to connect with her before sending their CV or to do any research, and to my knowledge, none of the ones that weren’t called for interview have made any effort to follow up their application. This is an entry level job for a graduate or suitably experienced candidate. Madness!

So, my advice is to take some time to think about how you can stand out and grab the attention of the right people, in a good way! Don’t become one of the crowd and just rely on email. Make a call, be an individual who will be remembered. Of course follow the recruitment procedure as indicated by the company, but add your own personality to your application.

If you need any help, give me a call.

And well done on your achievements, good luck to you all in the world of work!
