Alex Wicks, Sales Negotiator, Buckinghamshire

I was a little lost and needed a kick start.  After 5 years in the hospitality industry, I needed a new challenge but didn’t know where to start.  Fortunately, I was introduced to Mike Smith, Mike is a professional recruitment consultant who, after a discussion gave me a new perspective on my skills and started a dialogue which expanded my vision of a potential new career.  Mike got me started on a new CV and then helped me get it focused on how to make it appropriate for a number of new roles we had identified.  We worked together on finding a few relevant job sites and I posted my new CV’s – I’m happy to say that I got responses and interviews with a number of organisations.

The positive input and guidance gave me the impetus to go from a need to change career direction into concrete actions and ultimately into a new role in a new industry.  I’m really excited to be moving forward and know that without Mike’s professional guidance I think the process would have been less focused, it would taken a lot more time and have been more stressful!
