Who are you?

My name is Nicky, I write for this blog. I’m a former recruitment consultant and current career coach for graduates

Why did you start this blog?

To help anyone who is struggling as bad as I was when I first left University and started looking for a graduate job.

I graduated at the height of the recession – it took me almost a year to find a job – and in that time I went through 49 interviews, suffered countless humiliations and had to bounce back from numerous rejections – I was even made to dance the chicken at an interview and still didn’t get the job!

What I learned from that experience is that not only was I doing all the wrong things, but that most of us are taught to go about job hunting in the most inefficient, time-consuming and useless way possible.

This blog is to counter all of that – it focuses on the most efficient and quickest ways to find a graduate job.

It’s the resource I wish I had back then.

For anyone who feels the way I used to: if you’re struggling, increasingly frustrated and slowly losing hope

You can get a great graduate career fast – it is possible and I will show you how.

What do you do when you’re not busy writing for graduatejobinaweek and helping grads find a job?
I’m a bit of an exercise fanatic – so usually I’m out running or in the gym. I’m also a big coffee fan so if you know any interesting coffee recipes, like this one please let me know!
