Dear Accountant

Sep 20, 2021

Searching for a job, building a career and relationships at work is a lot like dating, isn’t it? There are a lot of similarities between dating and job hunting. You have to market yourself, have a good profile and online presence to differentiate yourself from the crowd - then, there’s a period of searching, and the first impression, while going through all sorts of emotions like disappointment, rejection, and excitement. But what we may not have thought about is - during the process, if you can be authentic and vulnerable, and take risks. Not only do you get to learn so much about yourself - you also learn that none of these career and dating success can define who you are and your self worth.
