It’s not a job it’s not a career!

Why? Because everything tells us that these broad “and bland” statements are not working. Maybe they did when we first used them.

Otherwise businesses would be flourishing with employees who want to work and be there.

People have got so used to using this statement that its now old and become “ordinary”.

Would you hire someone who said this to you at interview?

Too many people use these words now, I hear it and I see it in TV and radio commercials and in too many interviews.

So what is it that would get you glued to the candidate? Make you sit up and say “WOW” and they become your “must have employee”?

What caught your attention?

Lets hear from you some of the best that you have heard and it transformed the conversation and more it was real when they joined you.

  1. It’s a vocation. A “profession”. A “calling”. For most professional positions, you do want to avoid using the ubiquitous term “Job” which is as Peter states, very bland and lackluster.

    A doctor does not refer to himself as someone going to his “job”. Same goes for a lawyer, investment banker, architect, engineer … etc.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
