On Monday's show, Mairead mentioned it was National Kick Butt Day and she got this message from a listener:

"Hi Mairead, I really wish I could kick the butt out of finding a job in Mayo so that I can relocate from Kildare to be closer to my partner.  As someone who is extremely capable, experienced, hard working and fast learning, I am getting really  frustrated that I can't even get interviews because I can't tick the leaving certificate and degree box on applications."

This can be a common stumbling block people come across when job hunting, so Mairead spoke to career coach Susan Keating from Clearview Coaching Group about how to get past it.
