Find a job in London

If you just graduated from university and want to find a job in London, take five steps towards success.

1. Decide on the work schedule. Think about which work schedule you like: part-time or full-time. Made up your mind? Then look at the relevant website:

find a part-time job in London;

find a full-time job in London.

One thing is for sure: first place, where you need to start looking for work, is recruitment agencies.

2. Answer the question: "Who do I want to be?" Many people ask themselves this question until now, so do not worry if you turned out to be one of them. There are many ways to understand what you need. First, contact the employment department of your university. If you are not a student for a long time alredy, take tests for career-guidance. Well, for those who know in which area to fulfil themselves, everything is much simpler.

3. Evaluate the alternatives. You don`t want to wait any longer? You have registered with all employment agencies in London, but are you still unlucky? Then consider the options:

start your own business;

join the startup;

look for a job on the Internet.

4. Work on the resume. Before you send your resume, make sure that it is drafted correctly:

created for the position you are applying for;

accentuate your strengths, important for working in the chosen field;

written clearly and concisely (it takes no more than two pages);

does not contain grammatical errors. If you are not a native speaker, ask an English friend to check your resume;

saved in pdf-format (such resumes look more professional);

well structured.

5. Go out house more often. It is efficient to constantly sit at home, checking job search sites and calling agencies. Try to visit:

academic and professional events with the participation of people already working in the specialty that you would like to get. Usually universities hold such events for free;

conferences. Yes, they are usually expensive, but you can apply in advance as a volunteer, then you can attend the event for free and interact with the participants on an equal;

public meetings, which may be attended by people already working for your chosen specialty.
