Former Recruiter at ING

Hi, my name is Gidi. I have an extensive background in international recruiting. From 2004 – 2010 I worked in the financial industry for ING, and recruited many graduates in the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Australia. I definitely noticed that a lot of graduates are facing severe challenges in applying successfully for a job. The main reason why they fail in the recruitment process is that they don't receive the proper guidance and have to learn through trial and error. It’s a time-consuming and error-prone process. This is why we created Career Kickstart. This course is developed to assist you as a graduate in your application process and make applying easier and more exciting. I wish you all the best on your application journey and enjoy this great course!
