Give A Grad A Go take pride in being the UK’s graduate jobs and graduate recruitment experts – our goal is to help you land your ideal graduate job.
We’ve already helped to kick-start over 2,000 graduate careers, and we would like yours to be next (that’s whether you’re fresh out of university, or have a few years’ work experience).
This page should help to answer any questions you have about our placement process, from the moment you register with us right up to your first day. If you have any questions that haven't been answered below, please get in touch.
Our goal is to help you to get the graduate job that perfectly matches your career ambitions. To do this, we need to find out about you, your background, your skills and what you want to get out of your career. If you don’t know yet, that’s fine - we might be able to help you figure that out, too.
Completing your profile (which takes minutes to do) will allow us to determine your career objectives and your past experience. Once you’ve completed your profile, we will update you via email about the jobs which best match what you’re looking for.
What are you waiting for? Register with Give A Grad A Go to begin your career journey!
Once you’re registered, you can start your journey to a graduate job by applying for any of the opportunities on our graduate jobs board.
We’ve purposely made the application process very easy to navigate.
When you find a role you like the look of, all you need to do is select the appropriate CV (you can store as many different versions as you like on your profile), and click ‘send’. You can keep track of all your applications on your dashboard.
Once we’ve received your application to a role, we’ll assess your CV and decide whether or not it matches what that particular client is looking for. If your application is successful, you’ll get a call from a Graduate Resourcer, who will want to find out more detail about your background, skillset and career ambitions. They will pass your information on to a Consultant, who will decide whether you are a good fit for the role you’ve applied for.
If your application makes in onto a shortlist, one of our Consultants will give you a call within a few working days. During this call, they will tell you about the company and the ins and outs of the role, and you will be asked about why you think you’d be a good fit. After this call, you will be asked to go away and research the company online.
Once the Consultant is sure that you’ll be a good fit (and provided that you still like the sound of the role) we’ll send your CV and profile over to the company.
It’s up to the client whether they’d like to invite you to interview. If you are unsuccessful, our team will reconvene to look for other roles you’d be a great fit for. Equally, we encourage you to apply for other roles you like the look of on the Give A Grad A Go website.
If you are successful and are invited in to interview, we’ll be on hand to help you prepare. After the interview is over, we will call to get your feedback, and let you know what the company thought of you.
If you get the job, congratulations! We’ll organise your start date, contract and references.
If you are unsuccessful, we’ll get as much feedback as we can from the company, and will keep you in mind for similar roles that come up.
We can’t promise you’ll find a job through us, but we’ll do everything we can to help you get on your way to finding the right graduate job for you.
The route to success isn't always clear, and can often take different directions. That's why we have mapped out our process, from start to finish, on your journey to a graduate job. Check it out below:
