Don't get stuck in an internship rut

“I’m looking for someone who can tell me what they’ve done well,” Trish Ferrett, manager of recruiting and global human resources for Pact, told Devex’s Kate Warren in this video interview.

Even if a job seeker is coming from a different sector, “results do transfer,” Ferrett said. So if you’ve managed a $1 million project or managed 10 people, make sure that you highlight detail, scope and results for the recruiter.
