Graduate Job Podcast

In episode 38 of the Graduate Job Podcast, we cover how to effectively use social media in your graduate job search, as I speak with careers advisor, author and social media expert Marielle Kelly. We examine everything you need to know to utilise social media tools to help you get a graduate job, covering Twitter, LinkedIn, blogging, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and everything in-between. From how to create the profiles, through to using them to research companies, reach out to people, and to make a mark online. It doesn’t matter if you’re a social media demon, or complete newbie, we have something in this episode to blow your socks off.
