In episode 23 of the Graduate Job Podcast I speak with Stefan Thomas, author of Business Networking for Dummies, and all-round expert on networking. We explore how as a student or recent graduate you can start to network effectively, how and why you should make the first move, and why you need to move out of your comfort zone into your adventure zone. If you think networking is just something other people need to do, or if your networking only currently extends as far as having a LinkedIn profile, then this episode is for you. As always, all links we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/networking. But without further ado, let’s crack on with episode 23.

Welcome to the 22nd episode of the Graduate Job Podcast.
With summer just around the corner, this week we have a special episode dedicated to some of the most fun and most exciting jobs you can do over the summer months. I speak with Oxfam Festival Stewards, Stoke Travel, and Xplore Activity Camps, who each share some amazing opportunities you can do whilst the sun is shining.

So if your exams have just finished and you’re looking for inspiration, or you’re bored with your part time job and want a summer to remember then this episode is for you.

In episode 20 of the Graduate Job Podcast I speak with Brad Burton, motivational speaker, business owner, and best-selling author, who shares his inspirational story of how he made it in the business world and his many challenges along the way. As a warning Brad pulls no punches with the language he uses, so if you don’t like the odd swear word it’s best that you skip this one. However, if you like your motivation full, frank, and straight between the eyes then this is definitely for you. Brad covers what is holding you back from success, why working for other people is a gamble, and why you should definitely think about starting your own business. As always, links to all we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/arse, but without further ado, sit back, relax, and brace yourself for half an hour with the one and only Brad Burton.
