My First Two Weeks In Recruitment - Ethan Bresnett
Posted by Ethan Bresnett
From the get-go at Pro I’ve been very busy! The days have been jam-packed with training, getting the hang of the do’s and don’ts and getting stuck into the role. The interview process with Pro-Group gave me a great insight into the role I would be undertaking, so thankfully nothing has been a massive surprise for me starting off this role. I’ve been carrying out a range of tasks, primarily surrounding candidate management, really getting to know people and understanding their current and future career goals. It’s been enjoyable getting in touch with people and is very rewarding once they are receptive and genuinely need your help, so I’m looking forward to progressing and being able to manage the entire process. When I haven’t been on the phones, I’ve been in a rigorous but exciting training process which has given me a great start to my recruitment career, and lots of tips and tricks to get me going. I’ve learned so much in my first few weeks here and I can’t wait to get involved with client interactions to start fully understanding the 360-recruitment process. The people here at Pro have been so welcoming, and it's clear that the constant support and encouraging atmosphere extends beyond the Associate Consultant days. While we have been thrown in at the deep end up somewhat, it has never felt overwhelming and I’ve always had a clear idea of what I should be doing and who to go to for help (which is basically anybody!). The office is in a great location, ideally located next to Leather Lane food market where there’s almost too much to choose from! There’s a real sense in the company that everybody works with a collective goal in mind, and I’ve loved seeing the support people have for each other and the pride they have in Pro and the work they do. As I am constantly learning about different markets and industries and my options are very open going forward as to where I specialise, so over the next few weeks, I will be looking to learn more to find my niche across tax, finance, legal and HR. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Pro so far and I am very excited to grow professionally, start contributing and find my feet in an exciting and sociable company. If you're looking to make a move into recruitment, I highly recommend you speak to Loren von Sternberg, who can offer a great insight into opportunities available at Pro-Group.
