Applying for graduate schemes is no easy feat - nobody ever warns you just how time consuming it can be!
You can spend hours tailoring CV's to fit a certain employer, or fine-tuning open-ended questions in the application stage, so it is very important you pick the schemes suited to your strengths. However, from our experience we found that picking the right schemes was a challenge in itself.
I was sitting in the Cardiff University library on a cold Monday night looking through the various guides and marking down those that interested me, only to find that applications had closed, or that they were not offering the Finance scheme that I was looking to apply for. Information was scattered across so many different websites, with many showing inaccurate and old information.
It should not be this difficult!
We thought about how much easier (and less time-consuming) the whole process would be if there was a central 'hive' that could give us all of the information we needed.
Here at 'The Grad Hive' we aim to be a one-stop-shop to help you make the early steps in a promising career. We pride ourselves on cutting out the hours you would have to spend on google to provide the main graduate employers across each type of industry, from Marketing to Legal, and Logistics to Finance.
We provide regular articles on how a new graduate can stand out from the crowd in an ever more competitive job market, and give industry insights from key figures across the business world.
We are a site run by recently-graduated young professionals who know and understand the problems graduates face when making the first steps of a career. We truly want to help you achieve the job offer you want as stress-free as possible, so you can spend more time doing the things you want to do.
We are able to open doors for you by introducing you to our network of current graduates at a range of companies. Get to know more about us above!
