How do recent grads get jobs? Plus–we respond to our first voice memo, and take a look back on earlier episodes in light of the recent US election results.
Some nice sites if you’re afraid about the job market:
Foundation for Young Australians: also good for people who are not australians.
Careers NZ/Mana Rapuara Aotearoa - resources, job help, and a job search.
Out for Australia - if you’re a LGBTQIA+ student in Australia, OfA has some good resources and can help you make good connections.
PLEASE MAKE A LINKEDIN PROFILE THANK YOU
