I recently attended, along with 200-300 of my closest job seeking friends, an interview extravaganza at the Department of Workforce Services office in Provo. Although it was much better organized than the last one, I am sure they didn’t anticipate the numbers that would come. They secured a larger number of interviewers, including people from local companies to interview, but it wasn’t enough. Due to better advertising, the job seekers came in droves.
After my first interview, I stood on the sidelines waiting my next turn while many waited in the hall unable to even enter the room. I began to feel uneasy standing on deck when most hadn’t even entered the stadium. I have had a great deal of interviewing experience on both ends of the table, so I decided to offer to take an interviewer seat. I enjoyed the opportunity! In fact, I interviewed a few friends I had met in my many networking opportunities.
Napoleon Hill says, “You can start right where you stand and apply the habit of going the extra mile by rendering more service and better service than you are now being paid for.” I firmly believe that which you send out shall return unto you again, and be restored. Don’t ever pass up an opportunity to serve, it will always come back to you. When given an opportunity to show your skill and serve another, lend a hand and your efforts WILL be noticed.
