What are the Best and Worst things about your job?

Best

I get to do more than client work - I've been working on the social committee, recruitment team, office move team, and most recently I've been making marketing material for the company! For me, since I have a business degree, I love the variety and didn't expect to use my degree as much as I have been. :) The people are also lovely, my manager is really nice and fun to be around, and my project manager for client work is a great mentor and teacher. Because Capacitas is a small company, I've gotten to speak to everybody, and I love being able to talk to the leadership team in a casual way - for example, me and the CEO were taking things apart together for the office move and just having a normal chat while doing so! Not every company can say that about their CEO. :)

Worst

Working from home can be lonely - however, with Covid letting up, I have been going into the office more. Also, sometimes clients can be frustrating for various reasons i.e. language barrier since I work with a French client largely. Due to the lack of face to face stuff, I feel like I've missed out on some training also, but I've been so busy with client work and learning on the job that it's been alright.

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

Make sure you link your skills to consultancy and give examples. Also, make sure you talk about your knowledge/experience of the more technical IT aspects (i.e. the industry and key parts of that). Since working here, I have helped out with recruitment and triaging the CVs, so I know that as long as you communicate well and cater your application to the company and job role, you have a good chance, regardless of what you've studied.

Do you have any interview tips?

Don't give up even when the questions are hard - remember that they are trying to see HOW your answer, not necessarily WHAT you answer. You will be asked questions about what the company does and slightly more technical questions about what that means, so be sure to do additional research on that!
