The emails and calls just keep coming, but now I know why. I am implementing new methods. Stay tuned!
7. I got tired of explaining to some recruiters.
At the top of that list is how to properly pronounce S-A-P. It’s not sap, it’s S-A-P. LOL!
6. I attended a free employment specialist training workshop and it helped me see a need.
The training was actually for individuals who assist former offenders find employment, housing, transportation and other services to reintegrate back into society as a productive citizen. I enjoy helping people!
5. I shadowed a very nice recruiter for three weeks and enjoyed what I was doing. It was actually four years ago when I was introduced to recruiting, but I made my way back to it and more than likely, this is where I will be doing for the remainder of my days.
4. I saw the Diversity numbers and know I can help.
I’ve been tracking these #s for years and they haven’t improved that much. Recently, some of the top technology giants released their #s and they all concluded, they have to do better. I know I can help with this part.
3. I wanted a career where I can blend all my knowledge, experience, skills and abilities while being myself. An extroverted tech geek, with athletic skills and street smarts, who can find a friend anywhere I go.
2. I know I can help companies find quality talent.
With my extensive experience and network, sometimes I am just an email or phone call or two, away from finding an almost perfect fit for the job.
1. I really want to help people find a career they are passionate about and will pay them more money, if that’s what they want.
Without thought or rehearsal, this phrase just came out of the depths of my soul. And when I think about it, it makes perfect sense to me.
