“If you are a recent uni graduate Industry Connect can be the perfect place.”
Ok, so now University is over, it’s time to get out into the real world and find a job!
But as many people discover, it’s not that simple.
There are graduates out there who have applied for hundreds of positions, and some haven’t even gotten an interview!
The biggest obstacle for recent graduates is experience – or rather the lack of.
Employers want people who have worked before, especially on real-time projects, dealing with real-world clients.
Why would they hire some recent graduate who’s never actually worked before? Especially when we’re dealing with deadlines, customer issues, and 7-figure budgets.
So recent graduates are stuck in a Catch 22; they can’t get a job without experience, and they can’t get experience without a job.
Luckily, Industry Connect are here to help.
A recent graduate just landed her first job as a test analyst
“I completed my studies at Massey Uni in business information systems, that was like in 2017 and then from 2018 I found it was quite hard to enter to the IT industry because I didn’t have any experience.
So what I did was an internship at Sky TV but the thing is I really wanted to work with a team and also I wanted to learn more on automation tools. So Industry Connect really helped me to enter into the market.
I would recommend any recent graduate to enter to Industry Connect. If you are struggling to find a job. If you are struggling to find a job Industry Connect could be a perfect place.”
