#74: How to find an Inspiring Graduate Job with Scott Mautz
Hello and welcome to the 74th episode of the Graduate Job Podcast. I’ve gone trans-Atlantic again today to bring you a very special guest; best-selling author Scott Mautz joins me on the show for a thought provoking episode where we explore how to find an inspiring graduate job. Scott is the author of the new book ‘Find The Fire’, and we explore this in detail as we delve into what will fire you up and get you excited in your first graduate job, and conversely, what are the things which are going to pour cold water on that passion and have you looking to move on to a different job. We explore the topic of finding happiness at work, looking at how to find what will inspire you, even if you haven’t worked before. Conversely we also delve into 9 anti-muses to finding passion and inspiration at work, how you can recognise them, and what you can do to avoid them. We touch upon whether it’s realistic to expect to be inspired all of the time in your graduate job, and what to do if your current job doesn’t excite you. Scott also shares some brilliant insights into the topic of confidence, such as how to tackle a fear of failure when applying for a graduate job, and how to increase your self confidence in a job interview or assessment centre. No matter where you are in your job search, just starting out or through the application process. This is an episode that you won’t want to miss.

Very informative, really helped me with my applications and the episodes on the issues surrounding applications such as time wasting/fear etc were very helpful. Almost feels like cheating.

This show has been such a help with my job applications and has massively helped with my overall confidence. The two on assessment centres and numerical tests really helped. Thanks
