Make sure you sell your previous work experience even if it is not within construction. Main focus elements should be; working within teams, leadership, ability to communicate clearly and problem solving.
It is also important to be flexible about working location. As the scheme has living away allowances and company cars this is less trouble for grads than with other companies.
