What’s your background? Career aspirations?
Ever since my high school days, I have been involved and intrigued by technology and its prospects. I started by building my first gaming system by myself, reading books and watching tutorials. It was definitely exciting and challenging for the first time, to the point that I had problems with the heatsink, but in the end was able to work around it. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to be involved in IT. I am looking forward to the future and hope to one day make it higher in the ladder of leadership.
What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
My current contract is soon coming to an end and that is what triggered my search for new roles and opportunities. If I had to mention anything that was frustrating, it would be how time consuming it is to find the right role. The process can be arduous and stressful at times, but challenging at the same time. I chose to try Seen out of curiosity more than need to be exact. The most surprising thing about Prime was how soon companies reach out to you, so that gave me a good perspective in terms of experiencing something new.
How did Seen ease your job search?
The process was terribly easy. I could sit back and relax and go over the companies that reached out for an interview. The way it allows the user to set his/her schedule for taking interviews is useful, and best of all it works. It was definitely different than other search engines and tools.
What excites you most about your new role?
The fact that I will be able to enhance my knowledge and leadership skills. Working with new people is great, and I can’t wait to see how others think and approach different situations.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
Don’t give up. However stressful the process is, persevere. It is definitely out there, and I am sure Seen would make that experience more enjoyable and stress free.
