I’m a Graduate Recruitment Consultant at Give a Grad a Go, so my role involves matching graduates with exciting companies looking to hire in the UK and across the globe.
My area of expertise
In my role as a Graduate Recruitment Consultant, my task is to have constructive conversations with candidates looking for that next step in their career. I assist the consultants by profiling candidates and recommending them in order to attempt to find candidates their ideal job.
Why I chose to work at Give a Grad a Go
Having not been searching for a role in recruitment initially, I essentially chose to work for Give a Grad a Go because of ‘that feeling’ I got from speaking to the consultants who were helping me search for other jobs. The friendly and helpful manner in which the consultants dealt with me was definitely a factor in choosing Give a Grad a Go for that next step in my own career. Also, I was enticed by the many nominations Give a Grad a Go received for being the best workplace!
The worst job I’ve had
Before starting this job, I had signed up for a job that was misrepresented let’s say! I had to conduct door-to-door sales where I had to convince people to switch their broadband providers. Being suited and booted to essentially knock on people’s doors and bother them for hours on end was not why I went to university and studied for a degree!
