Graduate Job Podcast

For episode 37 of the Graduate Job Podcast, by popular request we cover assessments centres, as I speak with career coach and assessment centre expert Kath Houston. We delve into what assessment centres are, what companies are looking for from them, through to how you can stand out in the group exercises, presentations, and job interviews. If you’ve applied or are thinking of applying for a graduate job then this is going to be an episode you will not want to miss. As always, all links to everything we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at Before we start a quick request from me, I’ve set up a super simple and very quick survey, as I want the show to best serve your needs.
