Graduate Job Podcast

In episode 57 of the Graduate Job Podcast I am joined by Leanne Jacobs, holistic wealth expert and author of the excellent new book Beautiful Money. Leanne and I delve into her new book and explore exactly what the Beautiful Money concept is and why it is important in helping you find a graduate job. We discuss the epidemic of settling for a job that is ‘fine’, how you can avoid this trap, and tools to help you do so. We explore the secrets to using affirmations, and a vision board, and why these two tactics could revolutionise your approach to finding the job of your dreams. If you have ever been tempted by a job just because it has a nice salary, then this episode is for you. No matter where you are on your jobsearch, and no matter what type of job you are applying to, this is an episode you won’t want to miss. As always, all links to everything we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/beautiful. Right, let’s head straight over to my chat with Leanne.
