Discover This Month – March 2023

When it comes to finding a new job, one of the most important factors to consider is the level of experience required for the role. If you are a junior it can be challenging to find roles that are open to hiring first time job seekers or those with only a small amount of experience. Sometimes it’s hard to get started and find someone willing to give you a go so you can develop your experience. The good news is you won’t always be entry level.

Many employers do want someone with experience that can hit the ground running but not always. There are many more internship programs and graduate opportunities than in the past.

We are urging employers to think carefully if a person can be trained or it is vital to have previous experience.

How to break into the job market for entry level job seekers.

Starting your career can be both exciting and daunting. It can be challenging to know where to begin and how to stand out in a crowded job market with limited experience under your belt. Here are some tips to help you break into the job market and land your first entry-level role:


  • Build Your Network: One of the most effective ways to break into the job market is by building a strong network of professional contacts. Attend job fairs, networking events, and connect with professionals in your desired industry on LinkedIn. Networking can help you learn about job opportunities, get referrals, and gain insights into your chosen industry.
  • Gain Relevant Experience: Employers often seek candidates with some relevant experience. Gain experience by volunteering, interning, or freelancing in your desired field. Even if you don’t have direct experience in your desired role, any relevant experience can demonstrate your dedication, passion and commitment to getting a position in the sector.
  • Tailor Your Resume and Cover Letter: Make sure your resume and cover letter are tailored to the job you are applying for. Highlight any relevant skills or experiences you have that relate or are transferable. Employers want to see that you have taken the time to customize your application, it shows your enthusiasm and attention to detail.
  • Go part-time: sometimes taking a part-time role can lead to full time work. Even consider taking two part-time roles so you can build your skills and list two companies on your resume in the future.
  • Be Persistent: Landing your first job can take time, and you may face rejection along the way. Don’t get discouraged, keep applying to jobs that interest you. Be persistent in your job search and continue to improve your skills and gain experience. Every interview and job application is an opportunity to learn and grow.
  • Keep Learning: Continuous learning is essential to building a successful career. Take courses, attend workshops, or gain certifications that demonstrate your knowledge and skills. Keep up with the latest trends and news in your industry to show employers that you are passionate about your work.
  • Breaking into the job market can be challenging, but with perseverance, dedication, and a strong work ethic, you can land your first entry-level role
