Graduands - A CV Centre Guide
A graduand is defined as a university student who has finished all of their studies but has not yet fully graduated. You will probably know by this stage what your degree result is and are just waiting for the graduation ceremony to have your degree conferred.
However, this does not necessarily mean that you should delay looking for employment until your degree has been formalised. On the contrary, this is the ideal time for you to embark immediately on a proactive job search.
The first, and arguably most important, step is to get your CV updated with the details of your degree. This new qualification can take pride of place at the top of the education section of your CV with your graduation date alongside it if you wish.
As you will be attempting to break into the job market at the same time as many of your fellow graduates, the sooner you start the job-hunting process the better. Utilise the Internet to find any specific vacancies that you wish to apply for, send speculative applications to companies that you particularly want to work for and start to network in your chosen industry sector. Let business contacts know that, although you are still awaiting your graduation ceremony, your studies are over and you are now and ready and eager to enter the workplace.
"I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the service I received from The CV Centre. I used my new CV to apply for three positions. The first was with a very well known high street tyre company, who offered me the position without interview! The second and third were with high street banks, and they have also made me offers. I can only say that this is proof enough that your CV writing services are fantastic!"Richard Vermont, IT Manager, Glasgow
