Applying for jobs

Autumn careers fair in the Great Hall

Not every job is advertised on the big job sites - or even in our database! It is estimated that more than half of all jobs are filled without ever being advertised. Learn more from our guide on how to find the hidden jobs market, and look for jobs and employers using social media. Speculative applications don't always succeed, though - be prepared to handle rejection and keep your motivation going.

The application process

Finding a job to apply for is only the start. Read our advice on CVs and application forms (and remember you can get them checked by booking an appointment with us or by sending them in through our email enquiry service), look up our guide to interview preparation, and get some practice in on psychometric tests. We can help you make a good impression.
