If you’ve recently graduated from university, chances are that you’ll have just started to think about your career. It’s an exciting time, but with all that choice in front of you in terms of industry, city, company and role, it can be overwhelming. But it needn’t be – with the right advice and a little confidence up your sleeve, you’ll have more offers than you know what to do with. Capital One has put together an infographic full of the best career hints and tips that they’ve come across over the years, all of which will help you to stand out as the best person for the job.

It’s ultimately important that you kick off your career in the right way and that you stand yourself in good stead for your professional future. You might not even be aware of the aspects of your application or interview that could put potential employers off. Not making enough eye contact, as simple as it sounds, can really make a poor impression, as can being reluctant to crack a smile. And with employers often making up their mind about you within the first 90 seconds of an interview, it’s really worth making an effort in those crucial early moments. After all, your future career could depend on it.

From biscuit making to banking, everyone’s career goals are different – so it’s key that you do your research and apply for the right sorts of roles. And that’s where this infographic comes in: whether it’s perfecting your CV, properly preparing for an interview or fine tuning your body language so you always give off the right impression, this infographic covers the areas where candidates tend to fall down. And the creators of this infographic, Capital One, would know – they’ve interviewed a lot of people through the years! If any of your friends are in the same boat, be sure to share it with them.
