It’s Sandra Bellamy.
I have set up this Blog especially for You.
Why you may ask?
I have worked in retail for over 16 years, over 7 of those were in management roles. Part of my role as a manager was to interview, recruit, train and coach staff. During my career I have been made redundant twice and successfully managed to get back onto work. I have been able to see the recruitment process from both sides, as a recruiter and as someone who is being interviewed for a job.
At first I felt my gut was wrenched from me, worried about my future, concerned about finances, bewildered and lost, I just didn’t know what I was going to do.
A couple of weeks later I began to feel relieved it was over. I thought about the negative aspects of the job I had just left and focused on what I could change about my life and my future career to make me happy. Rather than milling along in a job, I began to see and understand what job I was meant to be doing.
What was I passionate about?
What made me happy?
And what did I ultimately want to do with my life?
I came up with two answers:
- To be a writer
- To help people
Redundancy changed my whole outlook on life and now I am a much happier, more fulfilled person, who believes in myself and what I was born to do. I do not profess to be the best, just to enjoy what I do and help others along the way as best I can.
This Blog is about helping you be a happier person and with a huge effort on your part, assisting you back into work.
