Landing that first job right out of University can be a major challenge. Recruiters may come to your college, and if so, you had better be ready. Some common questions about the process are answered below.
What should I do to get ready to land my dream job?
If you know that a specific recruiter looks closely at grads from your college, study up on their company and have your application ready. The more prepared you are and knowledgeable on the company, the more impressed the recruiters will be. There’s simply no excuse not to have done the right amount of research… even if it’s the night before!
How do I prepare for any test that might be required?
If the company has specific practice tests, make sure to research any preparation materials they might already have online. Filling out standard questionnaires and practicing interview questions also never hurts. Testing may seem like something that one either does well on one doesn’t, but the more prepared you are, then the less nervous you will be.
What is the best tip for interviews?
Stay focused on the job and company on hand. Make sure to highlight your strengths, but do make sure that the reasons you are interested in the specific position and company come across. This will set you apart from other applicants. Recruiters are not only looking for talent and hard workers, but for those who show a genuine interest in the company they wish to join.
Bottom line, if you want to land your dream job, be ready and do your homework. Recruiters that mass interview from specific Universities are looking for the right fit, but also who might stand out from the crowd. Do your best to make sure you show them the best version of you.
