what’s worse “Sorry, your application failed” Not getting an email from the graduate’s employer, or even an approval of your application? Either way, it’s a very frustrating experience. Especially if you feel that you have invested a lot of time and research into an application that you feel is the best you could have created. I meet many students who question whether they are good enough.This can increase anxiety if you have experienced imposter syndrome

The application process is troublesome…

but we try to rationalize it (“Highly competitive…there were probably more qualified applicants…there are other jobs I could apply for.”) The application process can be frustrating and demotivating, especially if it feels like many applications have failed. sometimes feel like It can be difficult to take.

But try to reframe your thinking and look at the process more objectively. Remind yourself that you have acquired a variety of transferable skills that will give you an advantage in getting a job. This is why graduate employers attend college job fairs. In many cases, when a recruiter is shortlisted for an interview, it can be a small margin and a few tweaks can make all the difference. common mistakes It’s something many applicants do that saves time and lessens the disappointment they might otherwise experience.

Do’s and Don’ts for Success in the Graduate Recruitment Process

All applications should be tailored to the specific role you are applying for.If you can explain why you want to work this How you meet company and employer requirements (outlined in Personal Specifications) increases your chances of progressing to the next stage of the hiring process. You have to convince employers why they are interested in you.
  • Are you only applying for roles that are purely motivating and exciting? Simply applying through a numbers game will not connect you with employers looking for candidates who are passionate about working for their company.
  • Are you using a “scattergun” approach? I once met a philosophy graduate who was offered a graduate role at his 81.st It seems counterintuitive, but resist the temptation to apply for many jobs. You can save money.
  • Before you start filling out the application form, Ask yourself why you are applying. This is one of the first questions asked in an interview, and if you can answer it with enthusiasm and interest, your application will resonate with employers.
  • If you find a job that interests you, research employersThis helps demonstrate commercial awareness It also helps you decide if this is the company you really want to work for. Consider what is important to you. For example, the company’s values, culture, sustainability and well-being policies? A good career choice is when you choose the right employer and the employer chooses you.
  • If the job details say you can For more information, please contact the person nominated DO IT BEFORE SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION! There may be questions, but it is also a chance to make a good first impression. When employers receive your application, they may remember you as the person who took the initiative. It shows that you are interested in the position and organization. Enthusiasm is contagious and will set you apart in a competitive job market.
  • It’s obvious, but it’s very important, so I’m going to repeat it. misspelling Be sure to read and review resumes, cover letters, and online applications as they suggest a lack of interest or professionalism.
  • Use relevant keywords Provide evidence of how you meet the recruiter’s criteria from job descriptions, role responsibilities, and person specifications. This helps you get through the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) used by many employers. “It is estimated that 70% of CVs violate ATS.”
Mistakes may result in application rejection

Of course, the application that you feel is great may not work. But please don’t take it personally. The graduate school job market is competitive, but be patient and learn from each application. Get objective feedback (Warwick students my advantage) and I’m sure the next application will lead to an interview.
