It has been a very busy and exciting year of growth for marilyn careers as we have undertaken many new recruitment roles for Australian & multinational organisations. See a snapshot here.
I am extremely proud that Marilyn Careers has assisted many individuals in securing new opportunities. My analysis for this last year shows over 75% have secured new roles within 6 months. Over 65% of new business has been from referrals of my services from past customers, so a very big thank you to those who have passed on my details.
Please also review our NEW website at www.mexeccareers.com where you can find out more about Marilyn & marilyn careers services and how we can assist you or your organisation.
Out & about with Marilyn
|Visiting the BIO2017 conference in San Diego has been on my 'bucket list' for over 15 years. I had the amazing experience of hearing talks from innovative and leading scientists that are developing technology that would have only thought to have been science fiction a short time ago. An article on Craig Venter by Forbes will give you a glimpse of some of the new areas of science on the horizon.|
I thoroughly enjoyed being invited to 3 careers panels and presenting a workshop for The University of Melbourne to assist their Master of Biotechnology students on how to articulate their expertise into their CV's. I still recall that very lost feeling of not knowing which way to turn when I was a young graduate and it's great to see that Universities provide much more support for graduates.
I have received a very personal reward from speaking with students who have felt they benefited from my experience and that of my over 20 years experience in science, business & recruitment.
Personal development is essential and one of the key areas is ongoing training and development to keep up in today's ever-changing environment. See below for links to websites that are free and I have found of interest.
I have had the pleasure of working as a recruitment adviser hiring new staff for the not for profit, The Australian Multicultural Community Services. I was also invited to present a 4 session workshop with immigrants on how to secure work in the Australian market. It is great to see the good work that AMCS does with many communities across Victoria.
