Applying for a graduate job

A graduate job refers to a full-time, entry-level position that requires the applicant to have a degree from a college, university or a business school in order to obtain the position. Often, applicants that are close to completing their academic qualifications will also be considered for these jobs. Graduate listings are offered by companies of all shapes and sizes and are one of the most common and most sought after forms of employment today.

Obtaining a graduate job involves – almost always – a personal interview with the company offering the position in question. Here a candidate’s professional and personal fit is analyzed and evaluated. The interview could extend over several rounds and could take various formats.

Working hours and entry-level salaries

You’ll probably be asked to work a set number of hours per week or per month. The number of hours is determined by the individual employer and can vary from one workplace to another, as well as from country to country. A common rule of thumb, however, is a workweek consisting of 30-45 hours.

Salary and benefits are also changeable elements of graduate jobs and are once again determined by the individual employer or country of occupation. A salary refers to a fixed regular payment made by an employer to an employee, while benefits refer to indirect or non-financial compensations offered. Both the salary paid and the benefits received should be more competitive in a graduate position than in a student job, graduate programme and/or an internship.
