Tim Carrington, founder of the Flying Start Job Hunt programme isn’t a careers advisor, but Tim is a guy who has a presentation that helps students avoid missing the main prize: their first career job.
Tim was a good student himself who worked hard and was liked by people he came in contact with. Tim spent 6 months after university looking for jobs. He applied for numerous jobs; for some he got through to interview stage, others he didn’t even get a reply.
Tim realised he didn’t know what he didn’t know about the recruitment process. Fast forward 10 years and Tim has been working in HR in New Zealand and overseas with the likes of British global recruitment company HAYS and Los Angeles-based global market support corporation AECOM, prior to founding Carrington Recruitment in 2011.
Having overseen thousands of job interviews and scholarship applications in his HR roles, Tim has identified consistent errors in job seekers and their job applications and interviews. Coupling his experience in the in-house HR sector with his recruitment agency, Tim has developed a successful formula for job seekers.
Finding a graduate role should be very important to you. It is that final step in the process of all this hard work. But just as Tim thought over ten years ago- “how do you know what you don’t know. How do you know what to expect? How do you also compete with the hundreds of applications for each job?”
The Flying Start Job Hunt programme teaches you what you need to do to help make the decision hard for the employers. It gives you the best chance of employment.
