In the world full of injustice, oppression and hatred you were born, but like Moses you chose to fight a good fight of justice, liberation and environment of love for all, you were born in royal house but you never rested seeing your fellow countrymen in slavery and bondage (both the oppressors and the oppressed).
Like Jesus, in the midst opposition and danger against your life you grew in knowledge, in stature and wisdom.
Lord God thank You for using Tata as a vessel of honor and as Moses of our generation, thank You for empowering him and ensuring that frustration as a result of the struggle did not get the better of him. (more…)
As we get ready to celebrate Heritage Day, apart from the “braai’s” we will all be having, have you ever stopped to think about WHAT we are celebrating? Heritage day is a Public Holiday on which South Africans’ across the nation are encouraged to celebrate their cultural heritage and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions. It is one of the most important cultural dates on the South African calendar and one of the most anticipated as well. At DAV we are so blessed to encounter people every day with different backgrounds, races and religions. Do we really understand and respect peoples’ cultures as much as we could?
There is so much you can’t tell just by seeing a person or just by hearing their name. That’s why understanding each others’ cultures and traditions is so important. (more…)
Last month I wrote about how important ‘candidate care’ is to us at DAV. We do not want you to feel like you are constantly being disappointed by regret after regret after automatic response after cliché after apology. We realise that this is what so many candidates can experience and that to the majority it might seem like our industry it set up to let down.
I am referring back to this because soon after writing last month’s blog I experienced a real life example illustrating how much we do care and I wanted to share it with you. It’s a great story.
I was working on a job assignment and the clients requirements made me think of a past candidate who we had successfully placed about 3 or 4 years back. She had since then moved on and we stayed in touch to update details, network and she had also referred some great candidates our way. So I gave her a call to chat to her about this particular job. She wasn’t actively looking, but after I shared the details of the opportunity with her she got very excited. It appealed to a number of her career aspirations as it was with her dream company and the role meant more growth and expansion of her skill set. So she went for it. (more…)

Some of the most common questions I receive when people find out that I am in recruitment is “Did you study for that?” “How did you get into recruiting?” “What does it involve; do you just find people jobs?” As it turns out, recruitment is seldom understood by many people and it’s enjoyable for me to open their minds to the roller coaster that is recruitment and what it takes to be in recruitment and most importantly to love it… the way I do
Recruitment is not something you study for. You can be trained to recruit, given the tools and methods to search candidates, interact with them and present them to clients, all the while upholding the most professional of names in the industry. To build a career in recruitment takes something more than learnt skills. It takes heart, a strong heart, and a lot of it. (more…)
What is goal setting? Is it something you do at the beginning of the year? Is it a rendition of a resolution? How many of you set yourself a goal each month? Be it in business or in your personal life, have a goal to work towards keep you focused and productive, it gives your daily activity purpose and develops a deeper sense of self-actualization by realizing we can achieve and control results through determined efforts.
Every month as a company we set our goals for the coming month. Each of us have a set target to reach and we declare it in front of our team mates to ensure accountability and to realize the reality of the goal we have set. Some might be thinking now, why would you set goals in recruitment? We operate in a high level sales environment, and every month is driven by stretched targets and increased performance. It is a daunting meeting, and yet exhilarating! Every month you get to start again and do even better, regardless of your results from the previous month. (more…)
