"I am currently in my first year of the INNOVATE Graduate Program. The great thing about this program is that you get to rotate departments, spending roughly six months in each. Today, I am working in the technical department learning all things IT. Other departments I will be working in are the Finance and Admin, Marketing, and Business Development.

I first started working in sales when I was in college. Like many college students, I did not have much money at the time and needed a part-time job. I ended up getting an evening door-to-door sales job selling milk for Avonmore and despite the bitter cold and the rain, I got a thrill out of making sales. Don’t get me wrong, it was HARD WORK but for me that’s what made it all the more rewarding.

When you join INNOVATE as part of the Graduate Training Program, their buddy system pairs you up with a former graduate to help and guide you when you start off in the company. I was paired up with Paul O'Leary who was very helpful to me from day one.

INNOVATE appreciate the skills you bring to the table but they also invest heavily in you. When I joined INNOVATE, I brought sales skills from previous employment and also media and design skills from my degree. So far I have attended training days and social media seminars. INNOVATE really see their graduates as future leaders for the business and provide us with many opportunities. I look forward to what’s next for me."
