Ciara’s Internship Journey


My Internship Journey

What I Expected

Before I took up an internship position at Three Q I was undertaking my M.A in Human Resource Management. I had just finished my exams when I was hired at Three Q as a HR & Candidate Rescourcer Intern. I initially decided to take up an intern position as I was still completing my Masters thesis.

Going into Three Q I did not know what to expect at first. However, everyone was extremely welcoming, helpful and kind.

What I Received

Before starting my role at Three Q I knew there would be training provided, which was a major reason I chose the position. However, the level of training and support that I received and continue to receive at Three Q exceeds all expectations. Being someone of a shy disposition, this really allowed me to develop and spread my wings.

I received a scheduled daily training plan that lasted 6 weeks. Then I shadowed experienced recruiters and was given one-on-one in depth training on all our computer applications & systems. I was shown areas such as;

  • LinkedIn
  • Data protection
  • How to screen
  • Reference check
  • and perform other essential recruitment activities.

Cora and Suzanne offer a wealth of knowledge and experience, always there to offer support to every member of staff regardless of position.

It is this kind of hard working, sincere and supportive company culture that sets Three Q apart from others in its field. It is this positive internal symbiotic relationship between all the employees at Three Q that makes it a positively uplifting and educational place to work.

Going Forward

My experience at Three Q has been one of growth and I am now thoroughly enjoying the hussle and bussle of a busy recruitment workplace.

After my internship at Three Q I hope to further pursue a career in HR.

Meadhbh’s Internship Journey


My Internship Journey So Far

I’m Meadhbh and I began my internship journey with Three Q 3 months ago to begin my career in Recruitment. I wanted to get into the field after working with a recruitment agency in Thailand, where I lived for two years teaching English.

I love working with people. All of my prior experience in some way dealt with interacting with and helping others, so I was really excited to start working in this area.

Over the last few months, I have learned so much from all of the Team at Three Q recruitment. I genuinely do not think that a bigger organization would foster growth with such attention to detail and care. For this I am extremely grateful for the chance to learn and grow with such a great small, but mighty company!


Recruitment is experiencing a huge surge and it seems that there are an unprecedented number of agencies in Dublin. Many are setting up again after the economic downturn made a lot of businesses redundant.

Three Q recently celebrated its 18th Birthday. This shows me that the company is resilient, and strived through the hard times back to the good. All without ever compromising on quality. Where others began cutting on quality they stood their ground. We never compromise on ANY of our P’s and Q’s!

Giving Back Is Important

Volunteering is something that is very important to me and an aspect I looked out for when choosing an organization with which to work.

Three Q genuinely wish to give back and always have and will where they can. As a team, we recently nominated a charity to get behind and donate an hour of our wages to that charity. This is such an important part of a business and one that every company should be involved in.

There are so many worthy charities out there and for me I love knowing that the company I work with, is a company that cares.

Find yourself a company that shares your values. I found one that shares mine, and there’s something about a shared vision that motivates me everyday in my job.




3 Tips To Nail Your Next Job Interview


3 Tips to nail your job interview

Many of us can probably re-call with a shudder, the memory of a job interview not going as you planned. In my case, it came in the form of an unexpected ‘sell me this pair of gloves’ demand in an interview for a retail outlet in my earlier years on the job hunt scene. I was not expecting this question and immediately began unravelling at the prospect of this role play situation.

This leads into my first point, let nothing be unexpected.


Do Your Research

This eliminates any chance for unwanted ‘surprises’ in an interview.

Glass Door is an amazing site that gives insight and reviews of companies from employees or others. It also has reviews from people who have done interviews for that company and can detail the process.


Listen To What Is Asked

It can be quite easy to miss a question in a job interview. Your nerves distract you, you’re constantly thinking of your next answer and this can prevent you from hearing a question. If you are not quite sure how to answer a question, ask them to rephrase or repeat it for you. Equally, If you need more time to think about the answer you wish to give, just request a moment to gather your thoughts, this is perfectly fine. Do not start a tangent just to fill the time.


Ask A Killer Question

This can leave a great impression with your interviewer If you get it right. Ask a question that makes them think, and infers that you have researched the company. I like to ask about a particular statistic they have quoted for CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiatives. This shows that you have done your research and that you’re interested in the companies extra-curricular’s.


So next time you go into that job interview, nail that gloves scene! Listen and respond effectively and wow them with a question that stands out.
