A Day in the life on the Boland Group Graduate Programme: PJ O’Kelly

This week PJ, our graduate specialist in Hertz Car Sales is sharing with us what a typical day on the Boland Graduate programme looks like for him. No two days are ever the same but this is a run through of a typical day in the life for PJ.

“To begin my day, I will start off the morning in trade sales tender unit moving cars to & from the unit. I will then photograph and video the cars. It is vital that we really have high quality clear pictures to show the customer the car to it’s best potential. Now that our business is all online this is now more important than ever.

Once all the photos have been taken, I go to Hertz Car Sale Preparation Centre. Here I carry out the final checks on any of the cars that have completed the preparation process & photograph them for the Hertz Car Sales website. Once this is complete, I go to the Hertz compound and book in the ex-rentals. Here I complete the service write up & bodywork dockets in advance of them entering the preparation process. I will often have to check for keys, batteries and key features of the car before they leave.

Once this is complete, I spend the remainder of my day replying to emails and online marketing for Hertz & Trade Sales.

So far, I am really enjoying my role in Hertz. They give me a lot of my own interesting tasks & responsibility which I am really grateful for as a graduate. I am looking forward to the variety of different projects that I will get to work on over the next year!”
