As I sit here in my makeshift “home office” with my loving wife, barking dog, and home schooled children, I am having conversation after conversation with people that I have known for months, years, even decades. I’m talking to long-time friends, long-lost friends, clients, candidates, and referral partners alike. We are talking about job loss, financial security, health concerns, family, and the job market. I KNOW that I am positioned exactly where I am intended and was reminded about this article that I wrote 9 months ago and it cannot be more true today!
One excerpt said, “For the last 14 years, I often lay awake at night thinking about who needs help and how I can best serve them, I wake up early in the morning with a passion to make a difference, and sometimes have very challenging conversations with those in transition with the purpose of motivating them to be their best self in the midst of self-doubt.”
These are challenging times for many due to uncertainty, doubt, pain, fear, and constantly evolving pandemic. I may not know when this will end or where these relationships will be in the coming days, weeks, months…but I’m listening, I’m encouraging, and I’m present!
I STILL LOVE MY RECRUITING CAREER!
P.S. Thanks to those who have forgiven my COVID-19 beard growth during video calls!
