Funnily enough I never thought I would write my first blog on this, but it seems fitting enough.
I love recruiting because your outcomes and achievements are tangible. Every time you make a new hire you get to see or hear the excitement within a candidate. You literally make someone’s day, even better you help grow an individual’s career.
I’m an internal recruiter and I truly believe in the product I am selling to my candidates. I feel privileged that everyday I get to sell the opportunity for others to work in the organisation that I believe is a truly wonderful place to work. I love recruiting because I know when I make a hire I’ve not only made someone happy for a day, but given them the gateway to be happy in a long term career.
As the saying goes, everybody lives by selling something. Recruitment gives me my opportunity to make sales. It allows me to source individuals with the same unique value set as our organisation and give them a chance to be fulfilled everyday of their working lives.
I love recruiting as you not only sell a candidate a role, you sell a chance at a better career with what you truly believe is a fantastic company.
Your on the right track and have a good grasp of what it's all about...making a difference in the lives of others through their careers.
Best of luck going forward...it sounds like you're enjoying the trek.
Thanks so much Valentino. Your response is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to the journey ahead.
