01 Aug Why I’m jumping into the (somewhat) unknown.
Yesterday I took the biggest step of my life so far, I gave up the security of working for a great company to explore my own ideas. Some build great things out of frustration, for me it has been quiet the opposite. Working in tech recruitment I had the opportunity of meeting some amazing companies, entrepreneurs, candidates who all ended up inspiring me greatly. I also discovered the world of design, startups but most importantly I got to see the real impact my work had on the people hiring or looking to be hired.
I’m a great believer in giving before receiving, building genuine relationships and that’s how I will continue my journey in recruitment. I think that concept often gets lost in this very competitive industry, something I’d love to change. Some of the best candidates I had the pleasure of working with didn’t even turn into placements but great friends instead. And that, to me, is more important than anything else.
“It’s better to give before you receive. And never keep score. If your interactions are ruled by generosity, your rewards will follow suit.”
