Welcome to the 31st episode of the Graduate Job Podcast. We focus down again for episode 31, which is the first of a two part special on graduate jobs in social work, as I speak to Katie Purser, Recruitment Director at Frontline. We delve into Frontline and its ground breaking 2 year graduate social work programme, examining what exactly it is, how you apply, and how you can stand out. We discuss the application process in detail and also cover why you should think about Frontline as your fast-track into a career in social work. If you’ve ever thought about working with children and families, then this is an episode you won’t want to miss. As always, links to all we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/Frontline. Before we start though, these special episodes came about from an email I received from a listener called Marnie, who emailed saying that she would love to get into social work and asked if I could interview some of the leading graduate schemes. If you have some particular people or industries you would like me to speak to on future shows, drop me a mail at email@example.com. I read everything and I look forward to hearing from you. But, let’s not waste anymore time, and crack straight on with episode 31.

In episode 30 of the Graduate Job Podcast I speak with author, blogger, and former financial advisor Kim Stephenson, who shares with us his insight as we cover a wide range of topics. We touch upon ideas of money, the stories you might have been telling yourself about money and the impact that they might be having on your job search. We also cover evolutionary biology and touch upon our old friend, yes the importance of understanding your values. No matter where you are as you look for work, be it unsure of where to apply, through to getting ready for an assessment centre, make sure you listen on as Kim’s thoughts on money will definitely get you thinking. As always, all links to everything we discuss and a full transcript are available in the show notes at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/money.
