Top Tips For Developing The Skills You Need For A Graduate Job

  • Network, network, network! Family, friends, contacts you meet by chance – it all counts!

  • Go to university careers fairs and employer presentations – not only can you pick up lots of helpful info on the industries you’re keen on, you will also have the chance to make a lasting impression with recruiters.


A final tip - believe in your own abilities and focus on presenting yourself as confident...but not arrogant. No one wants to spend all day working with someone who's full of themselves!

The Kit Kat Challenge...

It's amazing what happens when you're sat with a drink and 40 Kit Kats. Not so long ago we found ourselves in just that position with the excellent people from RateMyPlacement (RMP) and Nestle. And very quickly the Kit Kat Challenge was born. Think Jenga. But with Kit Kats. And a proper prize for winning rather than just the admiration of your mates.

Before long it went nationwide with students up and down the country fiercely competing for a place in the final. To see what it's all about and to get some top tips for the ultimate Kit Kat tower we headed to the Loughborough career fair...

 
Pretty awesome work by Nestle and RMP to bring it all together. Beats your average career fair stand and makes a welcome change from wandering around collecting pens for your stationary cabinet!
 
Keep your eyes peeled for the challenge coming to a campus near you. And don't forget our top tips for making the most of Career Fairs.
