It’s Blake, the Marketing Assistant at Recruiting Gym. It’s now been 3 months since I started my journey in the Recruitment Industry.

Now having passed my probation period, I thought it a perfect time to give some insight into how I have progressed both as a marketer and as a member of the recruitment industry during this time.

My First Month.

Starting a job in a new Industry is never easy. Being introduced to new technologies, learning words you have never heard of are just a couple of the things that can make starting a role overwhelming. My previous blog post details my first month in the Recruitment Industry and is a great read for anyone starting off in Recruitment, which you can read by clicking here.

How I have progressed my knowledge of the recruitment industry.


I’ve said it before, and I will say it again. This industry is full of amazing, friendly people. Recruiters, by nature are supportive and affable individuals and this is a massive boost for anyone looking to progress in this Industry. Communication is the key to progression and most recruiters are happy to talk, offer advice and answer any questions you may have.  

Personally, for me, the Recruiting Gym’s online sessions such as the Daily Workout, Meet the Expert and many more, have been extremely helpful for my progression. You tend to pick up on things when you listen to industry experts with years of experience every day! I may be biased as I do manage it, but the Daily Workout is perfect for anyone looking to make steady progression and it requires minimal effort.  

The daily workout sessions are live every weekday at 9 am and only last 10-15 minutes. All the live sessions from the quarter are available for FREE by signing up on for DW Lite on the Recruiting Gym website, with over 100 earlier sessions to access. Whilst it may sound like a shameless plug, I genuinely contribute a large part of my progression to the learning gained.  

What have I learned as a Marketer since starting my new role? 

At the time of joining Recruiting Gym, I had around 7 months of marketing experience, however this experience was very limited. In the 3 months I have spent since, new tasks I have learnt to complete include – email marketing, TikTok videos creation & posting, Twitter posting, Blog writing, Management of live sessions and much more.  

Working in an environment which allows you to engage in a myriad of tasks is amazing for anyone in the early stages of their career. I have become a much more well-rounded individual in both Marketing and IT since joining the Recruiting Gym. 


My 3 months could not have gone better. I have significantly progressed as both a member of the recruitment industry and as a digital marketer. The biggest lesson I have learnt over the last 3 months is that communication and working as a team is, for me, the most effective way to learn and progress. If you have any questions, please reach out to me on LinkedIn as I’d be happy to talk.
