Especially if you're interested in the Third Sector - bring on the networking.

Graduate Jobs and Schemes in Advertising


If you're looking to break into advertising the chaps at AdGrads have done a sterling job pulling all of the agencies accepting applications into a simple list.

Check out their blog and good luck with the applications! Remember, advertising applications are pretty different to your bog standard competency based form. Try and be original and interesting. Agencies want people with spark - if you're too earnest you're probably going to be sidelined for someone who looks more interesting. Try and corner your mates for a brain storm about different ways to approach things. After all that's how most agencies start with a client brief.

So here' a short exerpt from Pat Symonds the 'ex' technical lead of Renaul F1 who gave us some insights into graduate jobs in engineering and motorsport.
