Congratulations! Graduation is done and it’s time to embrace your future career. You’ve worked hard to be in this position, but now you find yourself wondering how to break into your career in the capital. This is a graduate’s guide to securing office support jobs in London from a successful London recruitment agency.
How to start applying for roles
It’s a daunting prospect applying for roles now that you’re officially a ‘graduate’. This is why it’s vital to get a London recruitment agency in your camp. They’ll help you find your first job, which acts as a springboard to your future career.
What’s more, if you choose Love Success, then you’ll also benefit from free online training options that will help to supplement your degree and boost your employability.
When you first start looking for graduate jobs in London, you’ll discover that you need some weapons in your arsenal. You’ll need a killer CV and to become a pro at interviewing. You can find out more about our services to help you secure graduate office support jobs here.
Knowing if a graduate role is right for you
Not everyone gets it right first time and that isn’t a problem! Every one of the office support jobs in London you do will serve as valuable experience and build your skills for your future career.
It’s also very hard to know exactly which roles are right for you when you have limited experience. For this reason, we often recommend that graduates spend some time doing temp work in London. Through this, you can learn more about yourself and the roles you’re suited to, and boost your skills.
Your best advocate will be your Love Success consultant. They’ll work with you to develop your career and make suggestions about strategies that will help. From advice on work ethics to the unwritten rules of the London business environment, they’ll be in your corner.
Get confident with your graduate job application
Even the most experienced career professionals can feel daunted when they’re applying for a new job. Accept that you’ll need to dedicate time to refine your applications, as this is a new experience. Consider application forms, cover letters, and CVs to be an ‘interview on paper’. Your consultant can help you here.
Also accept that there will be rejections. As a graduate, you don’t have a huge amount of experience under your belt. So you need to be able to demonstrate an outstanding work ethic and positivity. If you’re not successful, dust yourself off and get ready for the next opportunity. The right one is there—we just need to find it.
Embrace the challenge
With Brexit looming and employers unsure about hiring decisions, this year’s graduates may find it harder to secure permanent office support jobs in London. But there’s plenty of temp work in London that will give you the experience you need to secure the role you really want.
