I signed on with the promise of learning the industry, establishing a career, and working my way up the ranks. I brushed it off as a sales tactic – something you’re told – until my second week and a colleague had just returned from a trip to Asia and another two were about to set off to Europe. I couldn’t help but be impressed and intrigued at the notion of not only having the financial ability but work flexibility to leave mid-September for weeks at a time. I was instantly sold.
I joined as an administrative assistant and as such am fortunate enough to have experienced Ajulia Executive Search from every angle. I wrote to various companies securing and negotiating contracts. I scoured over job descriptions and learned which qualities were important to various industries and which career paths offered the biggest incomes. I felt more than ready to transition into the role of Account Executive – Recruiter
I quickly found that I was thrust into the big leagues. This industry is not for the faint of heart. You will be yelled at. You will be blamed. You will be told “No” more times than not, hung up on, lied to and led on. If you don’t have thick skin this is not for you. But if you’re lucky, like I was – you have an amazing team of management, training and peers that are not only supportive but willing to guide and mentor you every step of the way.
Nine months later and that promise of success and career growth has been met. I have been honored with employee of the Month (March 2018), Social Media Engagement Winner (Most Positive Reviews), and have even been invited to assist my amazing training manager with the development of incoming Account Executives.
I have helped place over 30 candidates into their new careers and I am so excited to see what it is that I will accomplish in the coming years with Ajulia Executive Search.
