Let the great job hunt commence!

I have just sent off my first application for a job for when my degree ends. I wasn't intending on starting this early but happened to hear about this one, which is being advertised now for a start date later on this year. Not one to pass up a good opportunity I've been spending the weekend updating my CV and filling in the application forms. I've found these websites and blog posts very helpful:
Good luck to anyone else job hunting!



  1. Thanks for putting this list together. I am ashamed to admit that my CV is woefully out of date. You may have just inspired me to work on it.

    Good luck with the job hunt!

  2. Good luck, Annie! What job did you apply for? I had a job interview in Cambridge a few weeks ago for a job at the UL that I REALLY wanted but unfortunatly didn't get :( Will be applying for more jobs in the coming weeks though!

  3. Thanks everyone!

    Claire, mine pretty much needed an entire rewrite, it's amazing how much can change in a year!

    Erika I've sent you a DM on Twitter :)

  4. Hi Annie, I'm so glad you found something useful in my blog post, and good luck with the job hunt!

  5. Hello Annie,
    Thank you for the links.
    In my job search i stumbled upon an interesting job board called ivyexec.
    There are some interesting articles and videos about creating a quality resume and preparing yourself for a job interview. Anyone had any experience with these guys?
