"My advice for new graduates applying is to not be afraid of applying for a role in a field that you feel you lack prior knowledge and experience in. If a job description interests you, and you want to learn more, show that passion during the interview process. Hiring staff do not expect graduates to have multiple years of experience under their belt, what they're in search for is a motivated individual who is eager to learn and grow. "
