I spent another early morning webinar with Service New Brunswick team members. Some of the nicest people you will ever meet, even in a zoom chat!
A public service job is a great job. A really great job. What if I meet you at a BBQ and you didn’t know me and I didn’t know you? What if at that barbeque I asked you if you like your job? (After one beer, the story can change at five, lol.) What would you say to a stranger at a BBQ if they asked you if you like your job?
What we say to that person is often the story we tell of our work. However, is it a true story? Sometimes people complain, but they actually like their job? Why do we do that? Because it is a habit. Let’s change the habit. Let’s be grateful for our job instead.
I enjoy working for those who do so much for others.
What a webinar with Job Zone Your Employment Resource Centre in beautiful Cornwall, Ontario, this morning. I have fully embraced my new normal and really enjoying my virtual reality.
Not only do I love delivering webinars, but I enjoy them, even more, when I am speaking to a group that does so much for others. Finding employment for people who need a job is essential work. Thank you, Julie, for recognizing the need to fill your team members’ professional and personal toolbox who do so much for others. We need to feed ourselves first — mentally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually. Then we can feed the four-legged and two-legged in our households. THEN we can go to work and feed the world.
Do you work at an employment services office? Let’s fill your toolboxes back up! Let’s celebrate how well you have done adapting to connecting and servicing your employers and job seekers.
