This is the first episode of a three part podcast series about what university students and recent graduates think they need to beat out the competition and secure a job after graduation.
In this 5-minute podcast, you will hear my conversation with Mehvish Mushtaq, a soon-to-be graduate from Ryerson University, who is finding it extremely difficult to get hired or even land an interview, despite having completed the “standard student checklist”.
