I applied in 2014 and met with a few managers who were very upfront about what the opportunity entailed and was fortunate enough to be hired.
The culture and challenges. It is a great group of people you get to work alongside who help you grow from people who are brand new to senior-level management. The challenges you face every day make it exciting to come in as every day is something different.
By understanding what the candidate’s skills, desires, and specialties are. I am able to share that information with clients and get them in touch with the candidate. If you truly know the candidate, it is a lot easier to sell them to the clients.
The biggest thing is to gain experience. Just having a certification will likely not do it, as most clients in the IT field care more about the experience than credentials.
They are not honest about what they want, whether it is salary, PTO, job title, etc. It is a major change and sometimes people are truly not committed to making that change and are not honest with us and themselves.
I enjoy being active, whether it is going to the gym, playing basketball or skiing; I always like to keep busy.
I played piano for over ten years.
Be very open with your consultant so that he/she can identify the best possible opportunity for you.
