Graduate Job Podcast

Hello and welcome to the 79th episode of the Graduate Job Podcast, and I’ve got a cracker for you today. Ever thought about a few different jobs and wondered what it would be like to try them out? Well my guest today did just that and then some. I’m joined by Emma Rosen, author of the new book ‘The Radical Sabbatical’, where she describes how she quit her dream job with the civil service fast stream to embark on an adventure to try 25 different jobs by the age 25. It’s an inspiring episode on many levels. In it Emma shares the emotions of getting the job of her dreams on the civil service fast stream and the inner turmoil she went through as she quit not long after, when she realised it wasn’t for her. She explores the background to embarking on 25 different jobs by the age of the 25 and how she went about getting those all important work placements. She shares brilliant insights into the mind-set, skills and approach needed to get work experience with any company, and why you shouldn’t be put off by thinking that it is a competitive industry that you are applying to. She also reveals her insider secrets of exactly what you need to do when you approach a company so that you get that vital yes to work experience. No matter where you are on your job search or if you haven’t thought about getting work experience or trying a work placement, this is an episode you aren’t going to want to miss.

Hello and welcome to the 77th episode of the Graduate Job Podcast, and boy do we have a cracker for you today. Now I’ve covered lots of episodes looking at how to get a graduate job, but today’s episode is slightly different, firstly in that it is part 1 of a 2 part series focussing on the exciting graduate opportunities available with global confectionary and food giant Mars. It’s also different in that in this first episode we aren’t focussing on how to get a graduate job with Mars, but instead are looking at what you can expect as a graduate on the Mars Leadership Experience graduate scheme. I’m joined by Fabio Ailings, who started as a graduate on the Mars Leadership Experience programme, and he shares his experiences and journey in progressing from a fresh-faced graduate through to his current role as Global Director for one of their biggest pet care brands. Fabio shares his experiences of 10 years at Mars, from going through the application process for the graduate scheme, to the steep learning curve he faced as a new graduate. You’ll discover what it’s really like to work at a global giant like Mars, and gain a taster for some of the roles you could expect to be doing. Fabio also shares his insider secrets for applying for Mars, and also reveals the two characteristics that will help you be successful on the Mars Graduate scheme. No matter if you have thought of applying for Mars or not, this is an episode which you aren’t going to want to miss. As I mentioned this is just the first part in my 2 part special with Mars, and once this has wetted your appetite for a career with Mars, stay tuned for next week for my interview with Andrew Sharp, European Head of Early Talent at Mars, who shares everything you need to know to apply for a graduate job with them, from the initial application to standing out in an assessment centre. A couple of cracking episodes if I do say so myself.  Now don’t worry about trying to remember everything you hear today, as a full transcript of today’s show and all the links we discuss can be found over in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/Mars.

Scott is the author of the new book ‘Find The Fire’, and we explore this in detail as we delve into what will fire you up and get you excited in your first graduate job, and conversely, what are the things which are going to pour cold water on that passion and have you looking to move on to a different job. We explore the topic of finding happiness at work, looking at how to find what will inspire you, even if you haven’t worked before. Conversely we also delve into 9 anti-muses to finding passion and inspiration at work, how you can recognise them, and what you can do to avoid them. We touch upon whether it’s realistic to expect to be inspired all of the time in your graduate job, and what to do if your current job doesn’t excite you. Scott also shares some brilliant insights into the topic of confidence, such as how to tackle a fear of failure when applying for a graduate job, and how to increase your self confidence in a job interview or assessment centre.  No matter where you are in your job search, just starting out or through the application process.
