Tips to Secure work – Graduate Program


Persistence is the KEY to securing work combined with finding a role that you can do comfortably

You do not want to aim for a role you cannot do, it’s very stressful on you and the people around you, so aim for something that suits your level of ability

Vice Versa you don’t want to be a big fish in a small pond, so you need to find something that suits you, hence why people, change jobs and move around until they find something they enjoy

This is why on the GAP program I always start with an overview of the sectors you can work in and what is expected of you in the workplace

Yesterday I was contacted by a young Civil Graduate who joined me 12 months ago, at the time he had graduated in 2018, & we went through the GAP program, he struggled through COVID times with a few aspects which is normal, anyway, now 3 years later he has started a role this week which is great news, the key to his success, Persistence plus and most importantly he found an entry-level role that suited his ability and confidence level, and most importantly he knew he had to network to prove his worth

This happens more than people realise, and it’s very common in fact, self-belief, confidence must be restored before you can take control of your own career, sometimes we are just not ready to hear the truth and over time it sorts it self out, you are sort of made to change in a way

All the best Mark Healy the Graduate Coach
