What Keeps Me Going
By: Chylmir Vicente Aguila | RPM Account Manager – TeleDevelopment Services
A lot of people ask what keeps me going?
People have left…. ( to seek what they think is better)
People transferred to different departments…. (to leave recruitment)
A lot of not so good things happened to me…. ( can happen anywhere)
Why still stay?
And why the same energy?
This is something I have to share with all of you.
I did not stay because of friends… (though it is a perk)
I did not stay because of the position… (we can get this with other companies)
I stayed because it is a chance to better the lives of others.
Recruitment is not a job for me…
Recruitment is a vocation…
People treat applicants as clients,
I look at it as an opportunity to help others.
Improving the lives of others is a great feeling (not only for you but for others as well.)
I was helped once, when I started out, and this kept me going ever since.
Paying it forward is how I look at it. Just by helping in my own little way, can help improve the lives of others. (Not only financially but, makes them change the way they feel about themselves).
Anywhere you go… there are a lot of negativities.
It is not the place or company that makes you better. (On the contrary, it is you that makes the workplace better.)
So what keeps me going… It is the positive opportunity to make life better.
