How To Choose A Graduate Job
Think about who you are and what you want
“Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?”
This job interview question can strike fear into the hearts of many graduates, and while none of us has a crystal ball, it’s important to show your potential employer you’ve thought about your career progression. Employers are looking for graduates who show ambition, a genuine passion for their chosen area, and a desire to keep developing and improving. Whilst looking for graduate jobs, you should research possible career progression paths, and consider asking about opportunities for development at interviews. Your goals are likely to change over the years, but overall it's helpful to have some kind of end objective in mind, which will help keep you motivated if you hit a dull or rough patch on your way up the career ladder.
