Your job search as a Young Graduate from A to Z

Are you about to graduate? If so, your head is probably buzzing with questions. You’re full of ambition, but how exactly will you chase your dreams after you’ve got your degree? Are you planning on visiting job fairs? Will you browse LinkedIn all day, every day? Or will you just see what comes your way? Talent Acquisition Partner Annelies Bertels helps you get started with five questions and answers:

1. Where do you start looking for a job?

“Create a LinkedIn profile, write a nice CV and try to imagine what your dream job in the IT industry looks like. Do you want to visit customers as a consultant? Would you like to have your own desk in a company’s internal IT department? In other words: do you prefer variation and adventure or structure? With the answers to these questions in mind, you can start your search. If you don’t know where to start, job fairs are a great starting point.”

2. Why should I visit a job fair?

“No two companies are the same. At a job fair, you can get a first impression of the company you’re interested in and see how they work. It’s also the ideal location to meet other Young Graduates as well as seasoned experts. What are you passionate about? Consultancy or internal IT? Job fairs will help you figure out what you’re looking for.”

3. At which job fairs can I find Xylos?

Some of you may have met us at Thomas More Geel’s job fair. Did you miss the event? Don’t worry, we’ll be present at the following two job fairs as well:

4. What is Xylos’ Young Graduates Program?

Did you know that the Young Graduates Program is tuned to your preferences and interests? During the program, you’ll be introduced to the various business units within Xylos.
