It’s been a while since my last post – which is slightly surprising when you consider I have spent most of the Summer staring at a computer. The reason for this blog neglect is that I have been doing my dissertation:
“What do FTSE100 companies do to leverage the network of the web for personnel resourcing? An exploration into activities, capabilities, strategy, brand implications and future expectations in e-recruitment.”
This might sound a bit geeky – but I loved it, hard work but fascinating and I know that it has helped me grow personally, professionally and academically. In fact that is what the whole MSc is about. Anyone can trawl through some books and write an essay but an MSc dictates reflection, dedication and a drive for success. I chose to do the full time course so that I could throw myself in 100% without distraction and I am glad I took that time out for development.
I will know my final results soon and then can proudly carry a few letters after my name. Having never been to University before and putting myself through the MSc gives another dimension of achievement which for me was a confidence builder not just an accumulation of knowledge.
