We were able to answer their questions on job seeking, key things to do and top tips on a typical hiring process. Here are a few key tips I would give any new graduate entering the  job market: Create a good CV and Cover Letter: a graduate CV will be different from other CVs. Less job experience means you will have to focus more on your education. Highlight any transferable skills you have developed and any areas of expertise within your qualification.
