Most jobs are now advertised online or on social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. There are lots of websites with graduate jobs listings, and some professions have specialist sites.
It’s never too early to start your job search in your final year as some national graduate schemes have deadlines as early as October. Many (but not all) of these require a minimum of a 2:1 to apply. Some also have a UCAS points minimum requirement.
Solent students and graduates need to register on Solent Graduate Jobs (SGJ) to be matched with work experience, part time jobs, placements, graduate opportunities and internships. SGJ will keep you up-to date with relevant posts via an email matching service so you may apply to the employer directly. Some job vacancies are exclusive to Solent students and graduates.
Remember, don't use your student email address for this, as you won't be able to use it after you leave Solent.

Many graduates find work through recruitment agencies. You should approach them in a professional manner, as if you were approaching a company directly for work.
A few points to keep in mind:

Employers are increasingly using social media to source candidates for employment, and to investigate those they are considering hiring.
Here are the three that are currently the most popular, but there are other sites that suit more specialist recruitment, particularly in more creative careers:
We have some tips on how to use social media effectively in your job search.
Look out for internships in your local area. Southampton Solent University has exclusive graduate opportunities for its alumni; these are advertised on Solent Graduate Jobs and the Solent University public website from January each year.
