Recruiting is one such profession which doesn’t allow to laugh every day. There will be heartaches, frustrations and at times backfires also. It is indeed not an exaggeration that a recruiter should have heart hard as a rock. Even in spite of repeated disappointments, a recruiter keeps swimming in an ocean of uncertainty hoping that he will get that precious pearl. This is height of optimism. It is an observation out of experience that people who are into recruitment, without a trace of doubt, are optimists to the core. What recruiting gives any one is not worthy for discussion, but it teaches individuals the very fundamental philosophy of life. You fall seven times, stand up on eigth…Pain and pleasure are antonymous to each other, but recruiting teaches us, if we allow it, how to be empathetic.
Phoenix is a bird and as per Greek mythology it rises from the ashes. This has more suitability to recruitment than any of the recent readings I am attached to. This has popped into my head and has settled down as a relative coming in the night. Phoenix is a mythical bird with fiery plumage and towards the end of its life gets burnt along with its nest. A fledgling Phoenix is born out of those ashes.
Phoenix is resoundingly synonymous to grit and determination and is fascinated by the light of sun and keeps on trying to reach him relentlessly. It never gives up its attempts. It takes some rest after a spell of serious futile efforts, unable to identify and acquire what it is looking for, restarts rejuvenated. Ultimately it perishes in the pursuit of its passion. The game is still not over. From the ashes rise another small bird to continue the legacy. Recruiters are presented with similar challenging circumstances that are devastating. Then one needs to remain sane with frontiers open and horizons wide. This experience is my no means unique – it happens to the best. This is where one needs to hold one’s heart and keep the journey on and on and on.
Believe that there are few things which can’t be changed.
- Obstacles are definite
- If it is time it is time
- Be close to your heart
- Support is Miraculous.
- Dark’s win over light is temporary…
As recruiters we are giving life to many…. This pleasure can’t be found in any other profession….
Understand this Funda…. Enjoy Recruiting ……
