Graduate Job Hunting

You’ve finished your degree, you’ve bought a new suit, you’ve shaved off your beardy and you’ve traded in your shoes with Velcro for ones with laces.

Handy Hints

  • When applying for a job, having 75% or more of the listed required skills is ideal, unless you’re applying for a job as a bullshit artist, in which case 5% is sufficient
  • Make sure you write the right name of the company and person you are applying to in your cover letter. This isn’t a funny tip. And it certainly isn’t funny if you fuck it up either
  • Contrary to popular belief, packing a rifle does not assist with the hunting
  • NS, ND, GSOH are not things you should list in the Skills & Attributes section of your CV
  • Being able to burp the alphabet, will win you friends in the lunchroom but probably won’t land you that graduate position
  • Pack hand sanitizer, you’re going to be shaking hands with a lot of people; a lot of people whose crotch grabbing frequency habits you are not yet versed in
  • Pack hand wipes, bathroom taps these days, you can never quite trust what they’re going to do next
