Good jobs aren't easy to find. A survey from the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) last year found that there were an average of 85 applications for every graduate job advertised. At the other end of the scale, even apprenticeships are receiving 11 applications per place, says the National Apprenticeship Service.

It is possible, though, to search for a job without having to face these odds - by looking for positions that haven't been advertised externally in the first place.
