City and country
When did you join?
20 April 2020
What prompted you to move to this new role?
I wanted to challenge myself in a new company with new people
How did you find the role?
I looked around Seek and found a job ad that generally fit what I was after. I then contacted the recruitment agency working on the role to discuss the details. We were then able to discuss a number of open roles
Overall what is the best advice you can give other job seekers?
Look around, ask around, you never know where you'll find a role that interests you
What was your biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge was finding a role that I was interested in, one week there could be interesting roles and then another week there might not be any roles that you are interested in.
Has starting your new job been easier or harder than expected? And why?
It has been harder than expected as everyone has been working from home, I have not been able to have any face to face interactions with the team, even trivial things are taking longer than expected.
What was your biggest positive surprise?
Working from home was seamless, as everyone was already used to it and knew how to work effectively from home.
