IT Recruitment Consultant, redappleit.com.au
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I match great technology talent with suitable employers
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I came from an Administration background with no desire to get into technology. My brother did Computer Science at Uni and he was always into computers and gaming. I was a dancer not a gamer. I was lucky enough to secure an Admin & Communications role with Accenture and my career in Technology Recruitment was born. I love learning about new tech & products but had never considered it as an option at school or Uni. It wasn't until I was working for a technology company that my eyes were opened to a career in tech.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
Opening a business. If you have a great idea for a business or product don't wait. Back yourself!
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
I love learning about technology & interacting with people. I love hunting down that elusive unicorn for my client or helping a candidate land their dream job. It doesn't get much better
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
I want a world where products & technology are designed by humans for humans not by men for humans. It doesn't make sense.
