Preparation is key to your success. Roy Keane is a great believer in the saying "failing to prepare, is preparing to fail". Interviews do not have to be intimidating, learn to be comfortable talking about your experience and achievements. DO NOT undersell yourself - this is something I constantly discuss with candidates, the most experienced of candidates still need to influence and convince the interviewer that they are the best person for the job. Be honest with yourself throughout a recruitment process - many factors influence your decision in taking that next opportunity. Don't let other people influence your decision, you are the one who has to show up to work day after day. I personally believe if you have a hunger to achieve your goals, then every other factor will take care of its self.
I joined Morgan Mckinley in April, 2015. Prior to this, I completed a degree in Business Studies in 2010, from their I jetted off to the sights of Sydney where I spent two years working in HR/Coordinaton roles.
This was my first experience of working with a recruitment agency as a temp, where I signed up as a candidate and got placed into two fantastic opportunities which have since opened many doors to me. I returned to Ireland in 2013 and spent the next year completing a Master's in Work and Organisational Behaviour, in this course a few modules focused on recruitment and selection, my interest peaked and I discovered this was an area I thoroughly enjoyed and wanted to develop in. I started working with an international recruitment agency based in Cork, I specialised in HR recruitment for the Cork market, from there I joined a fantastic team in Morgan Mckinley.
