According to Chris Rea, employer business manager for Graduate Prospects, there are many subtle ways in which students can help to increase their employment prospects post-university, including following the 'three Ps' and being punchy, precise and pertinent.
Far too many applicants fail to get to the point in their CVs or tailor them specifically to the job they are applying for, even though this can pay dividends when their resume is being considered by potential recruiters, the expert noted.
"With a good CV, you look at it and you know that there is a lot of stuff underneath it; it's deep and broad and that's how a recruiter starts to get faith and trust in the candidate," Mr Rea explained.
It comes after the latest graduate recruitment survey by High Flyers showed that students are beginning to apply earlier than ever for graduate jobs and are also applying for more roles than in recent years.
