I just had a thought whilst replying to another post.
I am experienced IT recruiter that has decided to move from Sales/Recruitment to being part of the action as a Front End Developer. I was successful in recruitment and worked my way up from a trainee to managing multiple teams in Europe over the space of 5 years.
However, whilst the money was very good, I would much rather development myself and forge a career in IT as I know it will be worthwhile in the long run and allow me to create some amazing things. Recruitment become repetitive and boring the longer I did it for. I feel like I’ve learnt and created so much already, and I’ve only been studying Web Development for around 2 months.
This may be of no interest to anyone at all, but if anyone has any questions that they wanted to ask with regard to improving their LinkedIn profile/how to get noticed/how much experience is needed for roles/interview questions and techniques etc or wanted to know how recruitment companies work then please feel free to ask a question in this thread. I hope my background will help me when I am at a sufficient level to apply for positions, so I am happy to give some advice if anyone has any questions.
