Graduates with jobs – what advice do you have for those still hunting?

Job advice for graduatesWHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED THAT YOU WISH YOU’D KNOWN SOONER?

What advice can graduates with jobs give to those who are still hunting?

One of the great strengths of Graduate Fog is you lot – our community. Every day, in the comments below our posts, we hear from readers who are battling all sorts of difficulties in their effort to find work. We are moved that time and time again, the rest of the GF community responds with sympathy, support and advice.

It’s clear that those who have found work don’t forget how it felt when they were hunting for a job. It stays with them (especially if they were looking for a while). And, for all the advice that experts and employers can give, we think it’s those graduates who have actually landed a job who are among the best placed to advise those who are still hunting. Why? Because your views are bang up to date.

So today we’re asking to hear from those of you who have managed to find a job in this tough climate. We want to know: What was the one change that you made that turned things around for you? Did you have a ‘Eureka’ moment where you ditched certain strategies, or broadened your search? How did you motivate yourself on ‘down’ days? 

PS. On behalf of those who are still struggling – THANK YOU!
