The Young Professionals Podcast (TYPP)

The Young Professionals Podcast (TYPP)

The Young Professionals Podcast is an initiative created by ADAPT Careers to support young adults in their world of work exploration. We hope to educate, inspire and motivate young adults to lead a productive and purposeful working life.

The Young Professionals Podcast (TYPP)

During the show, our co-hosts Luke and Sarge talk to young professionals about what they do in their day-to-day roles, how they got there and what they have learnt along the way.

TYPP was created so secondary school students, their parents, tertiary students and those considering a career change can learn from young professionals who have recently navigated the transition from education to the world of work.

The interviews explore a broad range of pathways from secondary education to the world of work. They are listed below by industry and / or study area.

We hope our clients use these career conversations as a career exploration tool to develop current and practical world of work knowledge.

We hope they ignite career curiosity and provide a framework for our clients to go and have investigative conversations with those in their networks to help them make informed decisions about their future.
