I specialise in IT recruitment across various disciplines in the Sydney Area.
In my opinion, having a personal brand that helps you stand out from the crowd is probably the most important aspect of job hunting, especially in this space. A skilled consultant will not only help you with creating that brand but will also help you use different tactics that can put you on the forefront.The contracting market is especially competitive as there are a number of highly skilled individuals with a wealth of experience available at competitive rates. My advice is that you find a recruiter who is well connected so that they can use their contacts to find the right opportunity for you. And remember, it is a two way street - you need to be comfortable with the role in front of you so don't be afraid to ask questions until you are satisfied.
I started my career in customer service, which helped me develop empathy and compassion and also how to relate to individuals on a personal level.
I have been running a contract desk for close to two years and understand the fickle and fast moving nature of the space. My greatest satisfaction comes from helping people secure their ideal roles. My strengths include honesty, integrity and transparency. I am also an avid reader (interested in Personal Development and Human Psychology) and a solo traveller.
