Today FM job-seeker promotion #careers #jobs #jobfairy

Listen to Mark McDonald and Chris Malendewicz HERE – interview on Today FM on Sunday, May 24, 2015. More details below.


“Mark McDonald of Sli Nua Careers offered a service that was second to none in my opinion. I have never come across someone who is so totally dedicated to what they do and works so hard to achieve the goals of their client. There was more than one occasion that he was on the phone to me at 10 o’clock on a Sunday night discussing job search strategy, applications or the next day’s interview such was his dedication.

Mark, I felt, as well as being a total gentleman was at all times completely on my side and believed in me and my abilities even when I was having trouble seeing myself as the highly valuable potential employee that I was. Relentlessly positive, he stuck with me and helped me to achieve my goals even when I was trying to convince him that I maybe wasn’t worth all the work that he was doing.

He kept the faith when I had lost it, built my confidence and was totally innovative and eye-opening in his approach to solutions to my recruitment problems. He also really understood where I was emotionally in my job search and constantly reassured me and helped me to identify my strengths as well as setting me targets and goals to achieve.

The interview training was totally brilliant, breaking the job description down into chunks and going through it piece by piece, recording it, with his objective advice and pointers and emailing it to me gave me the opportunity to really prepare for the interview well in advance giving me the confidence to know that I was extremely well prepared, calm and ready and that I was going to nail that interview and get that job!

I have now successfully secured a great job, in no small part to the efforts of Mark and Sli Nua and would not hesitate to recommend him, and them to anyone who is stuck in a rut employment wise, if you need a CV review, interview training or some advice about the way forward I think you should give them a ring” – Chris Malendewicz, Dublin (winner of our special promotion with Today FM)
