Is a job just that – only a job?
When I came back to work after a lovely, long Christmas break, I woke expecting to feel the usual January blues, but I didn’t. I wondered why it didn’t feel so bad to be going back to work and I quickly realised what differentiated me from the January blues people – my job, or more specifically, a job that I really like!
Most people spend over 40% of their waking week at work, that’s nearly half their lives. Although most people just work to pay the bills, can we not work and enjoy it too? I work as part of a global team across nine countries. Thankfully for me, every day brings new and interesting challenges.
Recruiters are tasked with not only finding jobseekers a job, but finding a professional, social and cultural fit a.k.a. a job that the jobseeker will actually like. It’s important that we take the time to recognise the employers’ needs and the jobseeker’s so we can ensure that as many people as possible will wake up in the morning and, like me, go to a job that they genuinely enjoy.
Is your job just a job? Have you looked to see what else is out there?
