There are a number of thing you can do outside of the classroom during your time at university that will help towards securing dream graduate jobs.
Volunteering abroad is a great experience and looks great on your CV – and so does volunteering locally. Approach your university, local charities and not-for-profit organisations to gain relevant industry experience. For other industries, network professionally and set up a week's work shadowing during reading week, or two days a week at a local agency.
Get part-time work
A part-time job gives you the facts and figures to back up your well-written graduate CV, and you never know what connections you’ll make through your work.
Make the most of media
Contribute to university media outlets. There are multiple opportunities ready for the taking on campus, including: writing for the university newspaper, hosting or producing a university radio/TV show or getting involved in the annual fashion show.
