Being a Recruiter has been an amazing experience. It’s made a profound difference in my own life. Being able to help others by positively influencing their lives, through changing their careers, is an indescribable experience.
Before I got in to the world of recruitment; I had my own negative experiences of what it was like being on the other side of the fence. I had hopes and dreams; short, medium and long term goals. Then one day, someone took a chance on me. They offered me their time and believed in me. They took the leap of faith and gave me the tools to succeed in my chosen career; which ultimately changed my life. I became that one person who in turn gets to help others.
Recruitment can have a positive impact of changing people’s lives, and what an extraordinary feeling that is! You become part of a very special world. This world does not only involve helping candidates take the next step in their career, but as recruiters we actually have the ability, on a daily basis, to make a difference. Most of the people we work with are looking for jobs that will give them more fulfilment and/or satisfaction, but they don’t know what specific career path would make them happier. They do not know where to go and how to do it, which is where I come in and assist.
Money used to drive me, but now I get to help people make life-changing decisions every day. I have the ability to guide and help people. I come home from work with a smile on my face every day. Being part of the recruitment industry makes it easy to wake up in the morning, knowing that today we have another chance to change the life of one of our candidates, and their families.
We all have one life to live. The key differentiator for me is to live life being happy and satisfied, whilst having a successful career too. Here are some questions to ask yourself about your current position:
• Does your employer value you as a unique asset?
• Are you being paid what you are worth?
• Are you being offered further education or training?
• Do you feel part of a winning team?
