Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness: Finding Joy in the Job Hunt

As many of us spend today getting back into a normal schedule after yesterday’s fun 4th of July celebrations, it can be easy to feel frustrated or discouraged as you jump back into your job hunt. However, we’d like to offer a bit of a different perspective this year to encourage you in your search for employment. Independence Day as a holiday celebrates our freedom that has been fought for and protected by generations of people just like you. Freedom is something to be valued and cherished, and not taken for granted. The right to “life, liberty ,and the pursuit of happiness” applies to all aspects of our lives, including employment and/or a job hunt.
The freedom to choose your education, your career, your own goals, etc. is a unique opportunity not experienced by many other countries worldwide. As a child in America, the possibilities are endless as you can pursue subjects that you enjoy, turn those into a college degree and eventually weave them into a career. Even if you are faced by a job change later in life, or need to find employment in a different field, you have the option to go back to school and re-establish yourself in the working world. Rather than being told what you can do and where you can go based on location, socioeconomic status, family history, etc., you are given equal opportunities to build your life from the ground up. The only thing stopping you is YOURSELF. That freedom is something that makes your job hunt joyful in a way.
With that being said though, we do understand that resources are an important part of building that life, and having connections for financial aid and assistance with school, help in making yourself marketable for openings in your area, etc. is key. That’s why PHR Staffing is here for you. We offer services to help you find training or educational opportunities, resume building assistance, support through the application and interview process, and post-hire support when you start your new job. We are here for you every step of the way, and you can be confident that your career goals will be met when you work with PHR Staffing Solutions. We are thankful for the freedom to help residents in and around the Polk County area find the job they love and reach their full potential. Give us a call if you are ready to pursue your own happiness and make your career goals happen!
