From my very first day, working at Fuse Recruitment, I was made to feel like a part of the team!
Everyone seemed so happy to meet me. I was even given a welcome card signed by everyone in the Melbourne office.
My first day, Monday, started with a team sales meeting which covered how our office is tracking for the month, both at a branch level and an individual level. I sat with Madeleine (our Team Leader of Insurance & Wealth Management) for most of the day training on the systems we use, such as Bullhorn, LinkedIn and Seek. I also attended candidate screenings with other Consultants. I spent the afternoon watching webinars and understanding how we use our database.
On my second day I was assigned my first role to start recruiting for! I searched the database for potential candidates with Leah and attended candidate meetings with the other Resourcers on our team. By the end of the day I had three candidate meetings set up. I also learnt how to write a job ad and post it to numerous job boards.
Today was my birthday! I arrived at work to find flowers on my desk and then a surprise birthday cake. I hadn’t even mentioned it to anyone! Leah and I interviewed one of my potential candidates, she seemed perfect for the role. I learnt how to put together a candidate profile and sent this off to be presented to the client.
I was able to call my candidate and let her know that we had set up an interview for her! I was also assigned another role to source for, so I spent most of my day using my new skills to search the database for new candidates to speak to.
Casual Friday! I sat with Matt (our Victoria Director) on Friday to talk about my KPI’s and we established the expectations for my first 3 months. It was quiet in the office, so we had music playing and ended the day with drinks, snacks and games.
I have found it difficult trying to cover everything I have learnt over my first week because we covered so much already in such a short time. I came away from my first week feeling encouraged and excited for this new chapter! I am happy to have been so warmly welcomed into the Fuse team and can’t wait to continue growing within this amazing environment.
