Graduate Job Podcast

A warm welcome to the first episode of the UK's number one careers podcast for 2021. It might be cold outside but I have a special guest who will warm you up with his brilliant careers advice as we tackle the perennial issue of how to get a job you love, it is, of course, the one, the only, John Lees. In the show today we explore whether it is still realistic to expect to find a job you love, and how as a graduate you can find the right job and role out of the thousands of companies out there. We cover why speed is of the essence and why you need to take advantage of your confidence window when you start applying. We delve into how to understand your skills as a new graduate and how to make sure you aren’t overlooking your natural talents, and we also address the thorny issue of money, and just how important it should be in your search for a graduate job you love. And finally, we discuss why you should listen to your gut and not your parents as you look for a graduate job. As always, you can find a full transcript and links to everything we discuss, in the show notes, which today are at www.graduatejobpodcast.com/love2.
