Do what you love and love what you do

I love workmet a gentleman recently at a networking event that really stood out for me; what he said really made me smile.

He loved his job, it was so obvious that he had a real belief in the company, their ethics and what he did.  He is a paralegal for a solicitors firm that specialises in will writing, which most people wouldn’t be excited about but his enthusiasm and excitement was infectious.

I believe that almost everyone has at some point been in a job they didn’t enjoy, would dread going to work, watch the clock all day until home time finally arrived and make a run for the door!

The impact the wrong job for you affects your whole life, can leave you feeling drained and agitated.

I have an amazing job, not everyone is suited to recruitment but for me it is perfect.  Like the networking gentleman, I believe in the company I work for, their ethics and the people I meet along the way.  My first interview with our company director showed her passion and honesty, characteristics that make a great boss and ultimately a great place to work.

Recruitment is a tough business to be in, the competition is fierce, the hours can be long and you need to be a mind reader some days, but I love what I do and wouldn’t change it for the world. The best part of my job is that I am helping other people feel the same way about theirs, taking the time to get to know our clients and candidates so that I can match the right people and companies, so that there is a culture fit alongside the relevant skills and experience needed.

I can’t imagine working anywhere else now and would urge anyone that doesn’t feel fulfilled by their job to re-evaluate, the ‘perfect ‘ job is out there, it took me until my 30’s to find mine, don’t give up hope!
