I enjoy talking to people about finding just the right job for them. Most people spend more time in their job than they do at home so it is really important to do so something that is right for you. I initially started off working in recruitment and I met so many people who were at a crossroads in their career and were working out what to do next.

Stuck Part 1

Stuck Part 1

By Jan Shankar

Remember the scene in "Groundhog Day" where Bill Murray's character gets stuck in the same day every time he wakes up each morning and just cannot move on? Same food, same events, same routines, same people, same weather, same conversations, same day at work. Over and over again. Imagine how strange that would be and how out of control you would feel in that situation. Unable to make changes and not in control of your own destiny. Knowing that every single thing you did at work that day would produce exactly the same result as it did yesterday and the day before. But that's just a piece of fiction, isn't it?
