On this episode I’m joined by Connor Hey from Org3D.

After studying to become a priest, he decided that he didn’t want to pursue that path professionally, and began to research into varying career options, and found that recruitment was best suited to his personality and career goals.

Since working at Org3D he’s learnt a lot about himself, and has had to work through the testing times of coronavirus still in the very early stages of his career.

For recruiters that want to learn more about the american market and how to do business development – this one’s for you.

For the junior recruiters out there, this is an excellent podcast to listen to because you will all probably relate to the feelings Connor has had during this time.

It’ll definitely give you some positive takeaways you can implement if you’re like him and just come back off furlough.
