Graduate Job Podcast

In episode 19 of the Graduate Job Podcast I speak with former graduate recruiter turned author and career coach Matt Hearnden. As a former graduate recruiter Matt has been freed from the shackles of corporate life, and as such he is able now to spill the beans on what it’s really like to have to wade through thousands of online applications, and conduct hundreds of telephone interviews and assessment centres. Matt doesn’t hold back and shares with us the secrets of exactly what you need to do to get that graduate job, including great advice on why you are probably getting rejected on the online application stage, and the simple tricks to get a yes from the telephone interview. If you are thinking of applying to a large graduate scheme then this is a must listen episode for you.  As always, links to all we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at
