My first 6 Months in Recruitment…


After spending four years in the teaching field, I transitioned into the recruitment industry. The transition has been a mix of both new and challenging experiences, and have helped me thrive in working with clients and candidates.

Over the past year, I have noticed a significant change in my mindset. I had grown disillusioned and unmotivated with teaching, and was generally unhappy with my profession. After deciding to leave teaching, I spoke with family members and friends about my next steps. Recruitment was suggested as a good fit for my skills and attributes, and I can say that my outlook on work has improved significantly. My family members have also noticed the change, saying that I have regained my drive.

It has been noteworthy to observe my former colleagues in teaching, who are either discontent or considering leaving the profession, inquire about my transition and even request to speak with companies about making the move themselves. If you are currently unhappy in your profession and considering a change, I would be happy to chat with you about future possibilities.
