What the site says about itself:
“graduate-jobs.com is NOT a recruitment agency, we are a specialist graduate job board. According to High Fliers Research (2007) graduate-jobs.com is the biggest independent graduate job board in the UK. We allow small and large organisations in the UK to post graduate job advertisements and search CVs in a quick and cost effective way. All our services are available online once you have created (or are issued with) a username and password.
The concept is simple: to deliver graduates the best selection of graduate-jobs on the Internet, and to provide recruiters with the most cost effective, focused access to graduate jobseekers.”
– You provide them with information about “Industry sectors you would like to work in” and “Career keywords” when you sign up, so they can create a list of opportunities that are relevant to your interests and experiences
– According the site, “over 3,665 recruiters” use this site
– You can search the site for jobs by location, employer, immediate start, sector, degree, industry
– You can upload a CV (resume) document so recruiters can “head hunt” you
– Provides a section of “graduate advice” guide to “assist you in formulating a plan for finding you your graduate job”
– This site is designed for people who want to work in the UK
– This site is designed for people who want to work in the UK (and primarily for people who are also from the UK) – so it may not be for you.
– Clearly geared toward students in the UK, as all others select “Non-EU university” when making personal profile.
– Also, enter “Degree result” with the options of “Bachelors Pass,” “Bachelors 2:2,” “Bachelors 2:1,” “Bachelors 1st,” which probably doesn’t mean much to U.S. students
If you’re specifically looking for an entry-level job in the UK, graduate-jobs.com seems like a great resource. If you’re not interested in relocating, this site it almost definitely not for you. However, you may want to check it out just to see what’s out there for people with similar interests and experience as you.
