It's the podcast you wished you had when you started your working life. Starting Somewhere delivers insights and stories that demystifies the internship landscape and dissects the seemingly scary world of work. Work has changed. Employers want more than a grade, candidates are demanding as much from their employer as their employer is of them. Internships are a crucial bridge from the classroom to the workplace. Each episode tackles a theme, with concrete takeaways, such as video interviewing tips. Or getting rid of your digital dirt. The series will add up to a step-by-step guide to help you find, land and get the best out of an internship and turn it into a job. The podcast will also tackle the hard topics: are internships just for the privileged who can afford to work for nothing, do they exclude valuable candidates from diverse backgrounds? Are interns being exploited, and what are the signs? Should all internships be paid, like in France! We will follow 'intern diaries' and collect useful tips and tricks, work hacks and answers to questions people are often afraid to ask.
