I started in October to send out around 20/25 applications: some did not pass the first stage (CV screening); some passed few stages, and only few ended up with an assessment centre (2 to be precise).The point I want to make is that, the more you apply, the better chances to get into the final stages and thus securing a job very early in the academic year.
Nevertheless, I decided to attend some of the 'Student Careers & Skills' services seminars, in particular how to build a CV and a Cover Letter, and some one-to-one sessions to assess the quality of my CV.
This was very useful and allowed me to modify my CV to be in line with the UK market expectations.
Coming from the “professional” world, as opposed to being a new graduate, probably helped me in understanding the mechanisms and the factors that can improve the chances of getting a job. Before though, I would like to stress the fact that everyone has different backgrounds and skills and probably different approaches to this, but I hope that my experience can help in having a different point of view on this matter.
I believe that there are four elements that contribute to successful job hunting.
4) Seek help from the WMG and Warwick support functions if needed: I have already mentioned the 'Student Careers & Skills', but inside WMG there are other source of information and support available.
WMG actively look out for job opportunities for their graduates and email out about opportunities that you can apply for.
For the complete outputs from Warwick researchers please see the University of Warwick Publications service from the tab above.
I was asked to write a blog about the difficulties (or not) in finding a job after the Masters course at WMG.
Nevertheless, my suggestion is to try to explore during the masters what you are good at and what you enjoy e.g.
do you enjoy more of the ‘strategic/planning’ bit of a task, or more the ‘analytical calculations’ of it?
