Q&A with New Starter, Morgan Jones
This week's Q&A is with Morgan. One of our new starters here at thryve, who we onboarded during the crisis.
Have you always worked in Recruitment or is this your first time?
"This is my first time working in recruitment but found out a lot about the industry beginning my career as I have a few friends in recruitment at the moment who told me a lot about it."
How are you finding working life at the moment?
"I haven’t been to the office yet so this the only work life that I have experienced whilst being at thyrve but I am definitely found the right set up and am enjoying the work from home lifestyle."
What are your thoughts on coming back into the office?
"I am buzzing to come back into the office and meet everyone. Its will be like another first day, meeting everyone for the first time."
How have you found training so far?
"The training has been brilliant! There hasn’t been one question that I’ve had which hasn’t been answered."
How have you spent your days off during lockdown?
"At the start I spent most of my time playing Xbox or on zoom doing a quiz with my mates. Recently, the golf courses are back open so have been playing a few rounds on the weekends."
What 3 things will you take from this experience?
"The 3 things ill take from this experience is that I had to be more independent with my decision making, improved my self-motivation and definitely made me realize not to work closely to the snack cupboard again!"
What are you finding most difficult at the moment?
"I would probably say keeping my motivation high as I don’t have my colleagues around me to give me support throughout the day but having said that I do enjoy the catch ups we have at the end of the day."
What advice would you give to anyone who was to be onboarded remotely?
"I would definitely say it isn’t as daunting as you may think. There is so many ways now that allow you get fully onboarded very easily and is not as difficult as it sounds."
