So, three months since my last blog post, and WOW - how things have changed!
It’s true when they say there are no two days the same in recruitment. I definitely felt the highs (which were fantastic) and the lows (which weren’t so fantastic to say the least) of the industry last year, but I’m still having so much fun doing a job I love, and which I’m ridiculously excited to be back to after a long break!
I learnt a lot before I went off for a very lovely Christmas. Spending most of it surrounded by my family, feeling very overwhelmed and grateful to have been gifted with such kind-hearted, wonderful people, really instilled in me what a ‘high’ moment in life feels like.
But I learnt that as amazing as those ‘highs’ I felt were, it’s really when I hit the low points that I’m able to learn and improve.
To ask myself
what did I do right?
What did I do wrong?
How can I change next time to prevent hitting a low again?
I’ve had to unlock a whole new mindset as I’m not really an analytical person, and struggle doing things like this (I’m 52% Fiery Red according to our personality quiz!) but I think I may have finally cracked it? I suppose we’ll have to see.
In summary, I feel the Christmas break has also given me the chance to collect my thoughts, reflect on the last 6 months and see the direction I’m headed for vs the direction I want to be heading in. I know now how to get where I want to be in 6 months’ time, and I won’t stop until I get there.
