1. We Know The Field

We’re experts at helping people find the perfect gradaute job. As a result, we can navigate you through the process and be there to give your our advice and support. At STEM Gradautes, you get to work with recruitment consultants who are experts in their field, (for us that’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

2. We Are Committed

Our job is to find you a job, but we also want to make sure it’s the right job for you. To be a recruiter you have to be knoweldgeable, hardworking and dedicated- so trust us, you’re in safe hands.

3. We Have The Time

We have the hours to chase up your application progress, sort out any problems with online tests, interview dates or contacts leaving you more time to focus on your studies.

4. We Can Help You Negotiate

Very few students have any experience of receiving a formal job offer, knowing how it compares to other job offers in the industry and negotiating the finer details. Job application processes, interview formats and job offers differ from one company to another. It is likely that you will find each process to be unique and this can make you unsure of what to expect, and how to respond. We can negotiate with your future employer on starting dates, salaries and just about anything else, to make sure both parties are happy.

5. We’re A Friendly Voice

Recruiters tend to like talking to people! A good recruiter will be very interested in what you want from a job, what your strongest skills are and what you think you can offer to a company. You can chat through ideas with us, ask us any questions about the market and use us for advice. We will also be the ones giving you feedback most of the time, and we like to think it’s nice to have one person to arrange everything through.

6. We’re Free!

Occasionally a worried candidate asks how much we will be charging to find them a job. It is the companies who pay us a fee to put our time into finding the best candidates and managing the practicalities of graduate recruitment, not you.  You never have to pay us anything at all.
