Graduates & Early Career Movers

Graduates today – Where are you?

  • Many new Graduates know what they want to do in their career but find it difficult to secure a job or get on the first step of the career ladder.
  • Many are unclear where their skills and talents are best suited and are confused by the uncertain job market. Some are entering the job market in an area which may be totally unsuitable for them.
  • Many 3-4 year plus “first bounce” Graduates have gained valuable experience but have hit a career crossroads and don’t know where to go next.
  • Many are wanting help from a Coach to improve their performance as they look to accelerate their careers.

Do you need help?

If you can answer YES to any of the following questions you may benefit from our specialist advice or our Graduate Career Review programme:

  • Are you are a new or recent graduate who wants to develop a career strategy to support your initial move into the job market?
  • Not received effective careers advice at school or university and now looking to know what jobs are out there and establish suitable career options?
  • Do you want to know about your transferable skills, your strengths and which careers and jobs you are most likely to be suited to?
  • Have you been employed for two or three years or in your first role but are unhappy and want to change direction and are not sure how to start?
  • Have never had a CV do you need to put one together?
  • Have you applied for many jobs since graduation but not yet managed to secure an interview?
  • Have you a good degree and a strong academic record and been going to interviews but been unable to convert them into a job offer?
  • Gateway’s career management experts can help you.
  • Are you an International Student who wants to secure your first job in the UK and know about how to use the UK job market effectively?
