As a teenager I dreamed of building supercomputers, like HAL from the movie 2001, a space odyssey.
I focused on science and math, and moved to the U.S. to study computer science and pursue my dream.
I was employee number 2 in a startup company, that rode the wave of the internet/tech boom of the mid 1990 ‘s. Two and a half years into the startup, money was good. I was on the fast track to success. Life was good, or was it?
I was dragging to go to work. I thought it must be the all nighters I had done over the years that were just catching up with me. I just needed a break. I took a week off, but I wasn’t looking forward to going back to work and I didn’t know why.
I took more time off and did some soul searching and discovered that although I had been ten years into my career as a software engineer, I really didn’t like my job. As for my dream of building supercomputers; well, that was just a random choice. As more time passed, I knew this wasn’t a passing phase attributed to job burnout.
But what work and career would I do? I spent months researching alternative careers and studying volumes of books on career planning and transition. Three month later, I identified a number of potential careers that suited my personality and interests. HR and Recruiting was as one of my top choices. After all, one of my many roles at the startup was being the sole HR/Recruiter. I was good at it and did it with enthusiasm and satisfaction. So I knew, I’m well suited for that work.
It was time to leave my software career. It was a tough decision, but the right decision. My new career mission was to help companies find the right candidates talent and find the right companies. I knew that my diverse background, experience, and career transition, brings more value to HR & recruiting.
