Dan Hawes, co-founder of the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, said that the workload many students have means it is hard to get experience of the working world while at university, but the effort is worth it when it comes to gaining a graduate role.
He explained that any kind of experience in the field they choose to move into will set them part from other candidates for sales jobs or whatever they choose to go into after university.
The expert advised: "At the very least, certainly during a vacation and summer time is a real opportunity to get some experience that is going to look good on your CV".
If necessary, people should volunteer so they at least have something tangible on their CV which can highlight their skills and abilities and suitability for a role, Mr Hawes added.
Recently, Stephen Hoare, writing for the Independent, said that people who fail to add something unique to their CV are unlikely to stand out and may therefore be hampering their recruitment prospects.
