Tips & tricks

  • In order to increase your competitiveness, when asked what industry or size of the company you want to work for, try to keep an open mind and list as many potential options available. Who knows, you could build the next unicorn, or work for a Fortune 500.
  • Show yourself off – showcase any freelance work, hackathons and/or projects you worked on in the “experience” section. In the “skills” section list as many languages, you’ve worked with as possible
  • Stay relevant – Try not to list any previous roles not related to the one you’re applying for
  • Location, Location, Location – If you’re looking to move to a new city it’s recommended you keep your potential relocations to 5 cities. Any more than that can be a negative.
  • Make it pretty – Everyone loves looking at a fresh new github and LinkedIn. Make sure you add your github with your updated projects and add your LinkedIn profile. And of course, it always helps to put a face to a name so throw up a profile picture to ensure your profile is complete.

About post author

Hello. My name is Lucy Smith. I recently quit my full-time Marketing Director role at a tech start-up in London, (after 13 years hard graft getting there), in favour of starting up on my own. Why? The journey from graduating with a 2:1 in Media and Cultural Studies to Marketing Director hasn't all been plain sailing, but is has been challenging and tremendous fun. A career path that I heartily recommend to anyone who will listen. Digital Marketing For Graduates is my brain-child. I'd like to give something back, as well as have the experience of starting my own business. I will give it my all. Provide and source the very best information I can, but I know I can't do it all alone. For Digital Marketing For Grads to evolve I will need some help. Please get in touch if you'd like to be part of the idea.
