Not only doctors are asked about medical advice when they are off duty, e.g. by fellow guests during dinner party. It seems to be an issue for other professions as well: lawyers, accountants and recruiters. In our daily jobs we all deal with topics that concern many, if not all, of the people around us. And it is more than natural for them to seek answers and advice. So I have been asked numerous questions about the job market, job searches, interviews and career decisions over the past 10 years. It sometimes happens during coaching session, but much more often at parties, while having a coffee, on trips and all sorts of other social occasions. And most of the questions are the same – no matter what their profession or where in the world they live, people seem to have similar concerns and worries. So I have decided to set up a blog where all my friends and also people I don’t know personally will be able to find answers when looking for them. It feels good to share my knowledge of the mysterious job market J
I have been running a blog in Polish for some time and when I moved to London, I decided to start one in English. It helps me to practise my writing skills in a foreign language! I hope you find the notes written here useful. And if you have any questions you think I might be able to answer, just pop them in the comment box!
About me in the nutshell:
Where I lived: Poland, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom. I also spent quite a lot of time in the Netherlands, though not enough to say that I lived there.
What I did: in-house HR, recruitment, training, e-learning and individual career consultancy.
What I believe in:
- The job market is much more than just the corporate world
- It is possible to find a job that you enjoy
- It is OK to enjoy your corporate job as much as it is to dream about changing it
