Another week, another TWIT! Whoop!

Keeping it short and sweet this week – some of the fun things keeping me extra busy at work at the moment are: HR Awards, funking up our company LinkedIn page, and lots and lots of recruitment (with no candidates to be found anywhere – yikes, it’s tight out there … that rhymes!)

This week I’ve been making more TikToks (I have 2 followers now), all my depression shopping parcels that I ordered during the Melb lockdown are arriving (yay), and I’ve been rediscovering music to get me through the work day. I actually thought I’d share a playlist I made for winter! I make playlists for every season, and … it’s winter now so voila! I keep adding new songs every. Check it out!

I hope everyone has a fantastical, amazing week!

How to be a professional troublemaker

Who doesn’t love getting up to some well-meaning mischief? In life, we have to be ready to make necessary trouble when it’s needed to disrupt the status quo and make positive change. I would dare to say that in these times, and working in talent acquisition, we almost have an obligation to do this to ensure equity. This is a 13-minute video that will inspire you to start making more trouble at work, and in life!

A Venture Capitalist Told Gen Z To Work Weekends If They Wanted To Be Successful

Ohhh the ol’ hustle mentality/culture. Is it true the working long hours = success? Would love to chat to anyone out there that’s “made it” without the long hours. Where the billionaires at with work/life balance? Holla!

1 Day WFH vs. 1 Year WFH

I promised more TikTok content … and I delivered! This is a bit of fun (and very, very TRUE!)
