Why do we run this competition?
Adzuna is a search engine for jobs used by over 6 million visitors per month that aims to list every job, everywhere. We search thousands of websites so our users don’t have to, bringing together millions of ads in one place. By providing smarter search options and powerful data about the job market, we give jobseekers the information they need to take control of their careers.
We know that the most sought-after graduate positions often attract hundreds of applicants. That is pretty serious competition for today’s newly-qualified job applicants. It can be difficult and sometimes daunting to try to stand out among the crowd. Therefore, we want to offer graduates this year an opportunity to put themselves in the spotlight and show the world that there is a lot of talent emerging at universities across the nation.
