What’s your background? Career aspirations?
I was working in a job that I was offered whilst on placement during my Computer Science degree. I had been working there full time for 3 years after graduating and wanted a new role.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
Lots of my friends left my current workplace, and I felt now was a good time to start looking. It was hard keeping up with all the different interview requests and technical assessments whilst working full time, but it saved me a lot of work in looking for new roles.
How did Seen ease your job search?
I didn’t have to spend time looking for new roles when I was being approached. This meant I had more exposure to businesses I may have never have heard about before.
What excites you most about your new role?
The new challenge and the increase in salary, which will make a huge difference to my lifestyle.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Accept that you are not right for some roles and that some businesses aren’t right for you. Get used to not finding what you are looking for but stick with it as one gem will crop up. You just have to be patient.
