Careers websites:

There is a plethora of useful websites out there in cyberspace. My favourite graduate information and recruitment site is http://careers.guardian.co.uk/.  For very practical information about what actually goes on each day in a particular role, try http://www.thejobcrowd.com. Many of the most informative for recent graduates are university websites which contain lots of tips for the application cycle. While I don’t endorse everything on these sites, they contain lots of samples that may be helpful.
