Utilising contacts to find vacancies is a very common way to secure employment. You might be thinking, "I don't have anyone in my network", but look at the list below:

  • friends
  • friends of friends
  • previous students from your course
  • lecturers
  • family
  • leisure interests
  • voluntary work
  • and previous employers.

Think about where you might have potential contacts for future work experience, work shadowing or job opportunities
