I unexpectedly found my facilitator introduction from an online Recruitment & Selection course I taught in 2009.
My career path provided me with experience in Sales, Operations and finally into the dynamic world of Human Resources. My understanding of the business allows me to be a valuable business partner to my clients.
Recruitment is not just about reading resumes and asking questions. It is about finding talented, high performing individuals who are looking for a place to grow their career and call home.
A great recruiter can change your life. I will always be grateful that a great recruiter changed mine.
What are the meaningful insights that I took from my walk down memory lane?
🔑 HR understanding and partnering with the business is a job requirement
🔑 There is not just one way forward. Look at candidates with transferable experience, skills and abilities
🔑 The candidate experience represents your employer brand
🔑Be transparent about what a candidate can expect once they become an employee - leadership, deliverables, expectations & culture
🔑 The recruitment experience changes lives, career paths & trajectories
Comfort zones exist as our safe places. They are our go-to's and bring forth feelings of stability, certainty and security. They can help us to feel comfortable and unintentionally can help us to avoid change...
Stepping out of our comfort zones can be scary, terrifying and also completely liberating. Yes - change can be exhilarating. 🤩
It's ok to become comfortable with being uncomfortable.
📌 Don’t attempt to change everything at once. Baby steps are better than no steps...
📌 Make a list of what you are afraid of or are concerned to do and WHY
📌 Take small steps toward your goals - you can always adjust or change as needed
📌 Don't be afraid of change or the feelings associated with being uncomfortable during the change
📌 Do not think about what you didn't do or should have done. Tomorrow can be a better day.
Every day we have the power to change our lives, our habits, and to make choices that help us to move away from our "comfy" comfort zones, one step at a time...
