I absolutely love what I do day in and day out and my goal when working with my clients is to ensure they do the same. And yes…it’s true and I don’t take it for granted at all. I am a full-time virtual recruiter for a financial services organization and I am convinced my purpose is connected to helping others identify their options and set and achieve professional goals. That is why I enjoy it so much.
I am literally walking in my purpose.
You absolutely must have a genuine interest in the work you’re doing at home to avoid being distracted by dinner prep, laundry sorting, dishwasher unloading, and a “quick” trip to Target…as if there is such a thing.
Believe me when I tell you that I used to struggle with the latter since there’s a Super Target a mile away from my house. If it’s not one thing to distract you, it’s another such as your comfy bed that has extended a personal invitation for you to take a nap, your favorite daytime show with the latest celebrity gossip that you absolutely can't miss, or the friend who’s just passing through your neighborhood and wants to chat for a “few minutes” about you-know-who.
I understand how exciting the thought of landing an opportunity to work from home is, but don’t get so excited that you forget to be strategic and you end up accepting an opportunity that doesn’t genuinely interest you and isn't a good match for your skills and experience. It starts with knowing exactly what you want. What does your ideal position (work-from-home or otherwise) look like? Be honest with yourself and be okay with not knowing the answer to that question…yet.
