Applying for graduate jobs and not sure when to start working on your application?
Graduate jobs are available year-round, but if you are looking for your first job after graduation it's best to apply as you're nearing graduation, or just after you have graduated to ensure you get first pick of the best career opportunities in London!
Following summer graduation season, there will be thousands of entry-level jobs in London and across the UK - so it's best to prepare your graduate CV well in advance.
Make sure that when you start applying for graduate jobs, you have lots of availability to go to graduate job interviews, and start the job as soon as possible. The graduate recruitment process tends to be very quick, so there's no point submitting lots of job applications, only to tell employers that you have a holiday booked and will not be able to attend interviews or assessment days.
Lots of university graduates are concerned about how to get a graduate job with no experience. In this case, it's a good idea to start building up your graduate CV even earlier; by undertaking a few week's work experience or by volunteering, possibly even part-time at university. If you're graduating without any work experience, though, don't panic - you can still write a great CV and land a fantastic graduate job.

Graduate schemes are training programmes undertaken by recent graduates. They will often be structured on a rotational basis, meaning that you will get a chance to experience many different sides of the business.
Graduate schemes can be especially beneficial if you don’t know what you want to do, but you do have an idea of the industry you'd like to work in.
There are hundreds of graduate schemes in London, with many of the best graduate schemes at large corporates in the finance or technology sectors. These are very popular with graduates; and given how competitive they are, you should apply for graduate schemes much earlier in the academic year.
There are benefits to both graduate schemes and entry-level graduate jobs; with thousands of different career opportunities for graduates, it can be hard to know what route to go down. So it is worth thinking about which one you'd be best suited to before you start applying.
It is important to note that competition for graduate programmes in London can be very high, particularly around the graduation period and during the summer months. That is why we would always recommend you keep your options open and apply for graduate jobs as well as graduate programmes or schemes… Sometimes graduate jobs can be better than graduate schemes.
Post-university, you might be looking for summer internships in London, in order to gain commercial experience and get your foot in the door at a company.
Especially if you're lacking in work experience, graduates can build up their CV even with a couple of months work.
If you are struggling to find a job after university, graduate internships (also known as paid placements) can be a great way to gain work experience as a graduate.
Graduate internships, especially if they are in an industry you would like to work in long-term, can be a great way to add to your graduate CV, and gain an insight into the right career for you. Interning for free? Know your rights.
