I have recently taken on a new role at Treeline, Inc. I am still an executive recruiter, building long-lasting partnerships with companies and strong partnerships with sales professionals and my mission has not changed. I still help companies find and hire top sales talent and assist sales professionals in their job search. The new aspect of my role is that I am now building out a team of my own, and let me just say it is way tougher than I thought it was going to be.
As a member of Generation Y, I can admit that we are a technology-driven generation and possibly more free-spirited than most when it comes to a job search. I mean can you blame us? With all of this technology, there are so many opportunities to be part of something great, or be part of “the next big thing.” We have been told that we are the future and special and that in turn has led to the argument that we are job hoppers and have a sense of entitlement when it comes to skipping entry-level roles.
Our client is an international, dynamic and rapidly growing company. They are doubling in size and taking over an entire floor in their building as they build out their Boston office. They are a leader in the software market, making software development easier while increasing overall productivity. They drive inbound leads and are closing business at a very high rate. The company is known not only for its software but excellent customer service. The executive team is top notch and they are exploding with growth and success.
I often see people writing blogs about motivation and success and they usually help me refocus my efforts. One subject which I rarely see in business-related blogs is happiness, which is a major factor amongst those other topics. I believe it is very difficult to be motivated, driven and successful if you are not happy. I’m not talking only about happiness at work but life in general. There is no doubt that a work-life balance is essential to success and I believe that what you do before and after business hours can directly affect how you perform at work and how you actually perceive it.
Global leader in educational travel, providing teachers and students with the resources to travel the world is looking for a Director of Sales. Our client has offices in over 100 countries and is expanding their Boston corporate offices. This is an opportunity to work for an organization that changes students’ lives every day by forcing them out of their comfort zone and giving them the educational experience of how life is lived in different parts of the world.
