If you’re looking for a good entry level or graduate job, it all begins with a strong job application. At Lighthouse Learning, we’re always hiring so we love to hear from people who share our values and have a genuine interest in what we do. To help set you on the path to career joy, we’ve put together our top five tips for graduate job seekers and future Lighthousers…

 

1. AIM FOR HAPPINESS

Always begin by identifying jobs that might make you happy. What do you need from a job in order to be happy and fulfilled? It’s surprising how many people don’t know the answer to this.

 

2. RESEARCH

Research the company, people and products to find out if you are genuinely interested and excited. If you love what they’re doing, let it show. Our website www.lumioeducation.com and social media channels are full of juicy info.

 

3. PERSONALISE

Always tailor your application for the role and company. If you send out the same generic letter to ten companies, you’re missing an opportunity to a) connect with someone personally and b) provide the most relevant information.

 

4. BE GENUINE

It’s ok if your career goal is just to ‘be happy’ or ‘work in digital’. You don’t need to have a solid 5 year plan all figured out. It’s better to be the real you; if you make something up, it will only sound clichéd!

 

5. SHOW POTENTIAL

Qualifications are great but for many graduate and entry level roles, a good employer will be more interested in your potential. Help them see underlying qualities like your personality, work ethic and ability to learn.
