After another successful Dragons Den, we had a few minutes to catch up with Jenny Garbis, former contestant on The Apprentice! Here’s what she had to say…
- Given your experience on The Apprentice – what is the best piece of advice you could give to our hopeful Reboot Camp™ candidates?
Firstly, I’d say to make sure candidates have researched companies thoroughly and know what the company specialises in. Secondly, don’t be scared to put things into action, this is how things get done in business. Follow up a company once you have sent them an email even if they don’t reply, this shows initiative. Make sure your ideas are well researched and put these ideas into action, but make sure you understand your market! Just go for it. Never make excuses if something goes wrong, you simply should have done more research! Self teaching puts you one step ahead of the game, so do this as much as you can to put you in a better position than other candidates.
