Krysta Muscat, Head of Recruitment at Betting Connections Recruitment Solutions, believes many roles in iGaming welcome skill sets developed in other industries, meaning the right attitude and motivation can be a determining factor in finding a job.
“iGaming is thriving and evolving all the time, so the approach is often to hire for the right attitude and train for the industry-specific skills,” she explains.
Ms Muscat highlights the role a good recruitment agency can play in helping connect job seekers with the right employers, discussing their needs, motivations, and expectations, working out career options whatever their levels of experience, and guiding them through the entire process. However, she also stresses the importance of a candidate fully preparing for an interview once a company offers one, a skill she says is still somewhat underrated.
“My advice is to really prepare to stand out and do your research thoroughly. It is important to fully explore what the company and industry are about, understanding as much as possible what the business you have applied for does. Part of our recruitment solution is to assist you with an interview preparation session, providing information and materials to aid your research, ensuring you go to your interview as confident and prepared as possible.”
For those who secure a post, Ms Muscat highlights the benefits on offer, with most companies embracing learning and development, and supporting seminars, courses and events to help employees better themselves. There’s also a focus on well-being, with common benefits such as breakfasts and lunches, gym packages, work-from-home options, social events and more. “What strikes me most is the lightning speed you can progress, sideways and upwards. If you have the right mentality and competency, you can really fast-forward your professional growth within the industry,” she says.
