What is your role in your organization now and what was your role earlier? As I can see that you are new for the QMS role. You wanted to establish QMS from the beginning or you just have to manage it the QMS that is already established in your organization?

I can see from your profile that your occupation is in field of HSE QAQC and QMS.

It depends on what you are aspiring to be. It would be ideal to start off in a junior quality role in an ISO accredited organization and work your way up as you will learn and gain some experience. After that it all depends on your ambitions and what career you want to pursue. Understanding of the standard cannot be gained without some experience and going deep in to the standard. You can tell them in the interview about what you recently learnt from the training.

April,

Firstly I would have a hair cut as it will be less painful than inevitably tearing it out.

I would follow @Thee Bouyyy 's advice or even start on the shop floor if manufacturing takes your fancy. Enter with wide eyed enthusiasm, an attitude for learning and listening and seize any and all opportunities. They will present themselves.

I was in your shoes 5 years ago and within a year I was QM and leading the organization through an automotive standard transition audit (a LOT of luck was thrown my way to get the opportunity but I took them). My only "quality" training was a couple of university modules.

There's lots of knowledge here, ask away and someone here will have the answers.

Some good advice is above.

What specific QMS & HSE training have you had? Did you get any certifications or a degree?

Do you have a resume? Is it well-written and professional looking?

I would start off googling the ISO standards for both. I'd start with ISO 9001:2015 and start reading the blogs about each chapter. It's very mind opening and should get you started on the right foot. Eventually you will get audited and learning what the auditors expect is clarifying.
