NEXT PHASE OF A CAREER SWITCH TO FINANCE

MY STORY

I have applied over 3,000 times in order to secure a job at a Big 4 company on an immigrant visa. My journey started in the 3rd year of Bachelor’s degree and spanned all over through Master's degree. I have been rejected countless times, failed recruitment tests, had awkward interviews and even got scammed over the process. Nevertheless, the desire to secure a work visa, a great job and pursue my career passions overcame the challenges.

It goes without saying that over those two years, I became a veteran in the recruitment process. I have learned and understood all the small details of career filtering that companies apply onto the candidate CVs, cover letters, test performance, interview behaviour and backgrounds. Having improved on each single area that is important for getting a job, my results knocked at my door with a Big 4 offer as a financial specialist with focus on the areas I have been passionate about in university years and wanted to devote my career life to.

I have been involved in various volunteering activities, including organisation of ethnic events relating to my Central Asian origin. I enjoy helping people around me to secure jobs and make the career switch to finance. I desire to share the baggage of understanding I gained across the mentioned road. My most recent experience involves working as a Scope volunteer mentor to help a young man with physical disability to find a job in a cybersecurity space.
