Work experience for graduate jobs isn’t always easy to find, but that also depends on how well you look for it. Are you using all the resources around you or just expecting a periodical browse on the internet to produce the right leads? To increase your chances you must think more entrepreneurial. Who do you know that is successful? How are they doing it? Do any chains of connecting friends or colleagues lead to the right people? Perhaps a friend is taking holiday from their work – offer to fill in. Maybe you hear in industry news that a company has just expanded or taken on a new client – send them congratulations and offer yourself as a work placement to help with the expansion. Perhaps joining your university Alumni or LinkedIn will connect you with the right people. It’s time to brainstorm - sometimes job searching is not always obvious.
