Sean O'Donovan's Summary
EMC is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver Information Technology as a service. Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing. Through innovative products and services, EMC accelerates the journey to cloud computing, helping IT departments to store, manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset — information — in a more agile, trusted and cost-efficient way.
EMC works with organizations around the world, in every industry, in the public and private sectors, and of every size, from start-ups to the Fortune Global 500. EMC also provides technology, products, and services to consumers in more than 100 countries.
EMC ranks among the ten most valuable technology companies in the world. To continue to thrive and grow, we need a diverse, driven team of talented employees.
I have over 7 years Recruitment experience. I have worked on both sides of the "the fence". 3 years I spent with CPL working accounts in MNC, FMCG and SMB's. I also have 3 years HR Generalist experience. My goal is to become the best I can possibly be in the Recruitment field and to head up a top Recruitment team.
