To all the wonderful talent, recruiting and hiring people.
We’ve been together for a few years now, we know each other much better. Good recruiters are a good thing, our talent is special. I believe our team can do better things than ever before, we are all finding jobs for people and building companies together.
When it’s good, it’s really good, the anticipation, the waiting for the candidate to say yes, or ace the interview, helping the client you’ve worked with for ages. Then it’s not so great, they say no, they let you down, they’re people after all.
You must control your emotions. You must suffer and survive the bad moments. You must maintain your integrity and all the while stay confident.
We all have dreams, lots of them, its important to win, its important to Create Futures, to make hires, to make placements. Minimum standards, one day at a time, week after week, month after month.
You can’t do this if you aren’t yourself, you can’t be true if you’re not being you, you’ll not be able to do your best work if you’re not confident to be you. In all your glory, beautiful, unique, creative and individual you.
Recruiters, talent partners, people ops, we are an ever-growing team of the most remarkable unsung heroes. Often criticized, rarely acclaimed, we should support one another and raise our voices together as one.
If you want to dream, if you want to achieve, to be incredible, to impose yourself, to really feel it, you must make a commitment.
Commit to your work, be proud of your job, finding jobs for people is a good thing, good recruiters are a good thing and good things come to good people.
