Graduate schemes are, naturally, very competitive. So yes, in short, it is not easy to find or secure sales graduate schemes. But, while there are thousands of people attempting to get the perfect graduate jobs in sales every day, this does not mean it’s an impossible task.
Ultimately, you need to have done your research and make sure you’re applying to graduate schemes where you’ll really stand a chance. It’s okay to be ambitious, but it will feel harder to land the perfect sales graduate scheme if you’re applying for ones with requirements outside of your current abilities.
Application processes can be lengthy and time-consuming. So, apply for ones where you’re confident you have a chance of success. And, most importantly, apply for companies you’d feel enthusiastic to work at. Ultimately, even with the right requirements, you’ll struggle in the application process if you can’t genuinely demonstrate enthusiasm to work at the company.
Either way, at Give a Grad a Go, we can give you all the important preparation to help you land your ideal sales graduate scheme!
