Istockcv.comIt can sometimes be more difficult than people expect to find an ideal job upon graduation. Graduates have the education but often lack any practical experience, making it a challenge at times to find that first job.


Enter iStockcv, a social recruiting site which is focused entirely on the recent graduate segment. iStockcv has over 9,000 companies that it works with to find student jobs, graduate jobs and internships and it does this for free. The service works by allowing graduates to discover the real side of companies by discussing directly with the potential employer’s staff or with ex-employees to give them a real perspective of what it is like to work for the company. Graduates can also join interest groups which can help them to find the ideal company that they never knew existed. In Their Own Words
