Last Minute Preparation for Applying to Graduate Schemes
You may not have noticed but adverts for 2019/20 graduate schemes have been published for a while already and the majority of them will open in September with deadlines October and November. For example, Morgan Stanley opened their programmes on Monday 3rd of September, Associated British Foods on Monday 3rd September, Frontline (social work) on 17th August and Civil Service Fast Stream will open on 20th September. Have a look on MyFuture for many others in a variety of sectors. However, have a look soon, some schemes close in a matter of weeks and some will close well ahead of the deadline if they receive enough applications.
So for those of you have not yet polished your CV, perfected your interview skills or practised those pesky psychometric tests, what can you do to get prepared before you start back at Bath?
