I was approached by a corporate head hunter this week.
There’s a position at a company they’re interested in having me fill.
At first I didn’t understand what was going on, but I did clue in after hearing ‘they’re interested’. So my question turned from ‘what’s happening’ to ‘why me’?
There’s probably 10,000 people in this city in the same line of work as myself. It’s not as if marketing is a ‘specialized’ career path. It’s not as if communications is a ‘specialized’ career path. Sure some people are good at it and some are average, but why me? There’s probably a lot of people who are good at it.
It can’t hurt to have a meeting and hear them out.
I mean, I have a job and I like my job, but I’ve also been told at my job that there’s no room for growth. If this could offer me that, don’t I owe it to myself to, at the very least, consider it?
Besides that, there’s no harm in considering it. I haven’t committed to anything.
I’m just dumbfounded at the whole situation.
Why me? Why not one of the other 9,999 people in this city who are in the same line of work?
I’m oddly confused that they sought me out. I’m also oddly proud. They sought me out. I didn’t go to them, they came and they found me. That’s a cool feeling.
