Post by: Job Hunter on May 02, 2014, 09:06:40 am
It is important to make sure that your personal profile summarises your skills and what you can offer to a potential employer as a Graduate. It's important to detail any work experience you may have had combined with your degree course and highlighting how this could be of interest to the company that you are applying for.
