You know what is more depressing than getting zero matches on Bumble on a sad Sunday night? Endlessly scrolling through graduate job websites, when you’re student only to be told there is nothing out there, unless, of course you want to work in a dead-end job in the backend of nowhere sealing envelopes all day every day.
We all know the pain, finding a job as a student was tough, tougher than 9am lectures, harder than hangovers and more painful than making your student loan stretch. But not anymore, because if you know (or are) a student it’s going to be so much easier thanks to Magnet.me.
Launched in the UK two years ago, they’ve gone on to become the No.1 job site for students in London. They now have more jobs, internships and placements than Targetjobs, Milkround and Prospects combined…pretty nifty. And they’re cool, interesting positions at companies that you actually want to work for. And they’re not just at big companies either, it includes start-ups as it’s free to post opportunities on their site, no envelope filling jobs here.
Like dating apps, you create your profile, choosing what sort of industry you want to work in and whether you’re after a permanent role or internship and then each day you’re given different options which you can swipe yes or no to, so that you don’t get weighed down with a load of jobs that don’t really suit you. Nor do you get spammed by hundreds of emails from recruitment companies. Nice one.
Not only are there jobs in London but you can also get placements in the Netherlands too with Dutch companies, which is going to boost your CV, because we all know just how hard getting a job is…it’ll make getting up for 9am lectures look a breeze.
Don’t just take it from us though, Magnet.me user Juhi Chikhlia found an internship at the Royal Bank of Canada. When asked about her experience with Magnet.me she said, “I found companies who were looking for students like me; the distance filter made it really simple for me to find companies and opportunities near me. I even got in touch with a few recruiters who I reached out to, and who reached out to me! Companies actually got in contact with me!”
“With Magnet.me it’s more about the application processes; discovering companies and opportunities I’ve never heard of, that match with me.
That’s how I found Royal Bank of Canada, after learning more about them on their page, I was really keen to work for them and they had perfect opportunities for me. I applied straight away and now I’m on a 6 weeks internship!”
