Write CVs and applications
Writing CVs and cover letters, completing application forms, taking aptitude tests, and preparing for interviews and assessment centres.

If your degree is vocational or the subject is relevant to the job, this can be more straightforward. If not, you'll have to demonstrate to employers how your postgraduate degree has enhanced your skill set beyond your undergraduate degree. What skills have you developed, beyond the subject-specific ones, during your Masters?
