Get to know your Recruiter: Rasminna Roslin
Tell us a little bit about what you do.
I am responsible for conducting market research, identifying job opportunities and connecting with prospective candidates within the legal and compliance industry at Star Anise.
How did you get into the recruitment industry?
During my final year at university, I worked as a Part-Time Marketing Assistant. I loved my job but it was not challenging enough for me and I wanted to explore other industries. Recruitment was on my list of industries to explore, and after much research (putting my skills to use early!) I found recruitment appealing to me because of the variety of challenging work and ability to network. In particular, I was drawn to Star Anise because of the focus on the legal and compliance industry. It has always been interesting to learn more about the legal and compliance industry (let alone recruitment!) and I was fortunate enough to find Star Anise which has helped me improve my knowledge and skillset in both industries!
What are the top 3 things you love about what you do?
- Gaining Knowledge – I am completely new to legal and compliance recruitment and it has been very exciting to learn about everything from the start!
- Networking – With my role as a Researcher, I get the opportunity to attend numerous events and network with clients and candidates.
- Challenging Tasks – Being a researcher in a new industry is not easy but I love the challenging tasks that are given to me as it is an excellent way for me to learn!
What’s the biggest challenge you face as a recruiter?
Some of the research tasks need to be completed in a day which means proper time management, proper understanding of the task and concentration is required. I think that is the biggest challenge but it is possible if you have a strong willpower and mentality.
How would your colleagues describe you?
My colleagues would describe me as an outgoing and hard-working person with a great sense of humor! *wink*
What do you like to do to unwind outside of the office?
I love taking part in outdoor activities. Usually, I end up planning hikes or kayaking with my friends. I also love travelling. I have been to a lot of places within Asia, but I am planning to travel out of Asia soon! My two favorite places I have visited this year would definitely be Japan and Bali.
Random fact about yourself:
I am a crime fiction and nonfiction lover! I have read a lot of crime novels and watched many crime shows on Netflix.
Restaurant (& item on the menu)...
I love Turkish and Persian food! My favorite restaurant is LOVEAT – a cute little Persian place in Central.
My daily morning routine is listening to Post Malone and all the Top Hits on Spotify.
Turkey (definitely going to spend all my money on food)
Red Velvet is always the way to go!
Biggest pet peeve?
Travelling on buses/cars gets really annoying because of my motion sickness.
Three items on your bucket list:

- Adopt a Cat (my mum hates pets)
