Recruiting for Good
January 18, 2018
Special thanks to Scott Groza for writing this inspired blog
After four years of college, one generally expects to be awarded a piece of paper that will open the doors of their profession to them. That piece of paper symbolizes a degree which crowns all of their efforts and enables them to further their dream chasing. Interestingly, however, finishing college does not just culminate in a title. Those who are successful come out with a certain level of skills that education instills into one's subconsciousness. Examples of it are time management, organization, accountability, persistence, and many more. Most importantly, education singlehandedly imparts leadership qualities.
To be a leader worthy of praise, one must find it endearing and joyful to meet people. After all, an individual split from socialization can never demonstrate leadership skills as there will be nobody to follow their guidance. Throughout education, regardless of the level and orientation, the never-ending shift of professors and a limitless inflow of fellow peers facilitates an environment where encounters are unavoidable. Thus, turning strangers into associates eventually becomes a mindless routine. That skill, although not explicitly taught in any school, is one of the most important features of a prospective leader.
Besides getting exceptionally well-versed at meeting new people, education blatantly forces one to become a team player. Whether it is through projects that would be impossible to fulfill without the help of others or some more crafty method, educated individuals can always recall being shoved into teams. And rightly so. In the professional world, there is no such thing as a one-man battle. Having employees, partners, and bosses is a system of chain-of-command that exists because it is fertile. Ultimately, becoming a figurehead that every member of the team follows is a true testament to the leadership ability.
Education starts with small steps. One day, it is an early-morning class. Soon after, it is a meeting to discuss what career will be pursued. Those types of decisions and the effort it takes to make them build a person up. They let them taste true control as they start calling the shots over their own livelihood. That power translates to ownership and an ability to take control of other people. After a while, making high-profile resolutions may become so well rehearsed that one will crave taking initiative and being in charge.
A human being has not experienced true growth until they overcome situations with more problems than solutions. These can be represented by all those times when someone had to prioritize between work and studying or leisure and business. When in school, those types of trade-offs have to be considered almost daily. Whenever a wrong decision is made, which is bound to happen, one will have to bear the repercussion of responsibility that was not met. For example, failing to study will result in a failed exam. That teaches someone to look at all possible outcomes and be prepared for any implications that arise as a byproduct of a decision. Such a skill is in high demand for leaders as they have to comprehend the enormous responsibility they undertake by commanding others.
Attention to Detail
Lastly, in order to be efficient, one must be very attentive. Someone who is in charge of hundreds of employees must be able to recognize what department is struggling, which manager is not fulfilling their duties, what part of the operation is falling short of its goal, and so on. Once again, getting a respectable education will ensure that this skill gets plenty of practice. There is a reason why students often get penalized for seemingly irrelevant issues like showing up late. Such an approach guarantees that one will be mindful of every small detail that pertains to success. Thus, once education is completed, the person will go on to a career of performing their duties while paying close attention to everything.

Why I Launched Our Moms Work Cause
This is a personal cause for me. Every day, I aspire to make my mom proud; I use my recruiting talent to improve people's lives by connecting them to great jobs. I am grateful to work with companies and candidates that I appreciate me.
Working moms inspire heart centered values and are instrumental in preparing contributors, creators, and leaders joining the workforce in their unique way.
It All Started When I Was Young
Mom inspired my life and work values.
"When I was in junior high school, my mom decided to go back to work, against my father's objections. My mom was driven by her passion to be creative; and as a paid actor, the job gave her the courage and freedom to leave him."
By finding moms jobs they love...we empower and honor them. If for the rest of my life, I can use my recruiting talent to change moms lives for good, that would be so rewarding...imagine a life so joyous that every day I called moms...and said to them...."You Got the Job."

Hire Grateful Workers
Recently, I placed a professional at a job, the first thing he did was thank me for representing him for a great opportunity. I find that candidates who are grateful are connected, present, and responsible. They appreciate everything in their life. As companies struggle to find and retain talent, they would be well suited to focus their efforts on hiring grateful workers.
How to Identify Grateful Workers
Ask Heart Centered Questions
- What supervisor past taught you something new?
- Who do you admire most, and why?
- Have you mentored or taught someone else a skill? Who was it?
- How did it make you feel to have an impact on another person?
- If you got the job today, what value could you contribute to making our company better?
Grateful Companies Hire Grateful Employees
Companies that create rich valued cultures, attract grateful talented professionals that can outlast and outperform most workers.
Gratitude Comes From...
We are all less than perfect, only when we forgive ourselves and others, can we accept ourselves, and others. The true nature of our emotional maturity is gratitude. Achieving a healthy balance to serve ourselves and others, we grow from within. And our gratitude empowers all.
Consider hiring moms first, they seem to get gratitude like no one else....want help finding grateful moms? Recruiting for Good is launching a high purpose cause, Our Moms Work, helping L.A. moms find part-time jobs they love.

A Change of Heart
"When the end is near, we appreciate life more."
About two months ago, I went for a physical, within an hour I was rushed to see a cardiologist. I somehow damaged my heart. I was having fainting spells, and thought may be I am not eating well. No. it seems my heart has been functioning at 80% capacity.
As soon as I heard from the doctor; I called my best friends, sisters, and mom, and they have been so supportive. Simultaneously though, I was filled with a great sense of loss...I felt empty. And even though over the years, I have positively impacted 100's of people's lives finding them great jobs...I just felt like I just hadn't done enough.
A Wake Up Call to Do More Today
I chose to look within, and ask questions, what do I love most about my life?
"I love to serve people, make a difference, and host parties."
So, I combined everything I love to create a fun, personal, and purposeful service that changes lives...Party for Good...L.A.'s exclusive members only club pampering kickass moms fighting Cancer; by helping fund the little perks and benefits to enjoy life every day.
A Change of Heart gifted me a new perspective and appreciation for life...every day I can kickass and party for good.
If you only had sometime to live, how would you change your life, what would you accomplish, what will you do for others?....Love to see you do it today.
