Do I love recruitment? NO. Absolutely not. I hate being treated badly. I hate that people don’t see my value. I hate being lied to. I hate our payment terms. I hate the ugliness in our industry.
So why do I do it?
I have a burning desire to help people. I have the sense that I can make a difference in someone’s life. I want to be part of something that doesn’t just involve me.
Being retrenched is scary as hell and I want to be that person to guide you and walk the journey with you.
Being badly treated and unhappy at your work can cause major depression and leaving can seem like a frightening option. I want to be that person that gives you strength to see the light, the courage to go meet great companies and the guidance that you need to resign and walk away.
Having worked your time with a company, I want to be the person that can show you the market, introduce the right companies to you and make the experience of choosing your next employer an adventure.
It’s taken years for me to understand why I am in recruitment and just why my company’s name is Nu Beginnings. Yea, it’s a new job. But it’s more than that. Anyone who has changed jobs, moving from a destructive environment to one where you flourish will understand that this beginning is a change of everything. A new you, new vision, new goals, new joy for life.
Do what you love.
Life is too short to be doing anything else.
