Podcasts Aiding Your Career

However, there are still steps candidates can take to ensure they’re still in the hunt for a role in the near future. We’ve covered the need to brush up CV’s and how you can stand out to recruiters. A new way to gain new tips and stay motivated could be listening to a podcast.
