Right, time to take the job hunt to the next level

Writing about web page

I'm determined not to be one of those graduates that ends up at a loose end when June rolls around. So this is my masterplan for planning a career. I've basically dedicated a wall of my room to it, which will get progressively filled up.

Careers wall

I've already been in to speak with a few staff at Eneco who have offered their words of wisdom. But ultimately it's up to me to find myself a decent (and I don't mean well paid) job. I'm after a position in probably a large company, and probably not a generic graduate scheme. I just want to get my hands dirty and work on real wind projects (most likely offshore). Well, it's not going to be straightforward to get into that. Since my last blog post I think I've just been getting stuck in the "HR loop" - where none of my potential bosses are actually glancing at my cover letter or CV. So the next step is to make my CV bolder, cover letter more tailored to each company and get the message out to people that will actually be interested in what I will do for them.
