Careers fairs can be a good place to start as well as talking to people you know who already work in your industry of interest. Following through with some work experience or even a work placement can then give you an unbeatable insight into what that career might really look like on a day-to-day basis (for better or worse) and the different paths you could take within it. However, once you are sure that you would like to give it a try, how can you maximise your chances of winning a coveted role in your profession of choice?
In my years of working at Exploristics, I have held various technical and managerial roles and been closely involved in our recruitments drives. In doing so, I have attended numerous careers fairs and so have come to understand the trepidation that many people feel, as well as the pitfalls that that they can often fall into, when applying for their first professional position. Therefore, to help make this initial step a little easier I have tried to summarise the best approach to take if you choose to apply for a role at Exploristics.
