Career Progression - Alex's story
Alex joined Liquid in August 2015 straight from university, looking for an opportunity to progress. He is one of our most promising junior consultants and has already achieved some great successes in his first year.
Background: Alex joined Liquid as a fresh graduate, having earned a degree in History from the University of Leicester. He had no previous knowledge of recruitment or sales, but demonstrated the raw talent to do well at Liquid. He joined our London & South East team as a Trainee Consultant.
Liquid Academy: When Alex started, he was enrolled on the Liquid Academy’s ‘Foundation Programme’, which gave him all the basic skills and knowledge to begin his career in recruitment. He’s currently working through the ‘Intermediate Programme’, learning more advanced recruitment skills and getting regular input from our most experienced consultants.
Progression: In less than a year, Alex has shown great promise. He has already won the ‘Consultant of the Month’ award twice; once after a successful presentation to managers, and once for making an incredible 11 placements in one month.
Alex’s tips for success:
You need to maintain a positive mental attitude and be disciplined in your work.
You won’t get results straight away, but if you believe in the process and keep putting the effort in, you will soon start seeing rewards!
