While most employers don't expect recent graduates to have a lot of relevant paid experience, communication skills, a strong work ethic, and the ability to think critically and problem solve are all skills highly valued by employers of graduates. They are looking for evidence that you are enthusiastic about the role and will fit in well with, and add value to, their company.

They will also be looking for you to have some kind of work experience gained by doing an internship, a part-time job, or vacation work; and other experience that highlights your ability to balance work and study commitments with other volunteer activities and interests.
