Alan Hector

I’m a Candidate Resourcer at Give A Grad A Go. I speak candidates about their ideal graduate jobs, and find out about their skills and interests.

My area of expertise

As an avid sports fan with an interest in finance I'd like to say these are my areas of expertise – but generally, I love dealing with anyone enthusiastic and driven; which is great considering I speak to a number of great graduates every day.

Why I chose to work at Give A Grad A Go

I was looking for something fast paced and interactive with a great company culture. From my first interview there was an infectious energy about Give A Grad A Go that I was really attracted to. I'm happy to say I found exactly what I was looking for. 

The worst job I've had

My worst job was actually advertised as a well-paid ushering job - it ended up being a car guard, working 12 hour shifts in a car park in 40 degree heat and no shade.
