As expected I prepared him as much a girlfriend in recruitment could, the rest would be up to him. I lent him my compendium, made sure that his tie matched his shirt and sent him on his way – he looked so smart in his suit.
When the interview finished I couldn’t help but quiz him like I do my candidates, how did the interview go?? Who did you meet? What type of questions did they ask you?? How did you answer the question?? What did you think of the organisation?? Did they ask you how they would proceed moving forward???? It would seem that things went very well, I was happy with the way he answered the questions – I felt oh-so-proud.
So that was yesterday, today at 5:35pm he received the offer to work as a Graduate Engineer with Ove ARUP an International Engineering Consulting firm. These are the guys who worked on projects like the Sydney Opera House, the Hong Kong MTR, Hong Kong Airport, The Beijing Olympic Aquatic Center, The London Eye and so fourth.
After all the hard yards, and years of wondering whether he made the right career choice he’s finally got his foot in the door – The future looks very bright.
