Hello and welcome to the 85th episode of the Graduate Job Podcast where I share with you 3 lessons you can learn from my coaching calls with clients as they apply for graduate jobs. As a career coach I work with clients who are applying for graduate jobs and internships, and in this episode I pick out and share 3 key lessons from these coaching sessions. We explore why you need to be thinking very carefully about what your unique selling points are as you apply for graduate jobs, why you need patience before you rush off and start applying for jobs, and finally why underestimating the psychometric tests could prove your undoing.
