This Monday, marks the 48th year that we commemorate fearless civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., for the dream that he had, and all of the valiant steps he took to accomplish it. This MLK day, ReFresh Your Step is giving you the okay to enjoy the day off from work by doing whatever it is that makes your soul happy (we, of course, will be working but doing so makes us happy!).
However, we do ask for one thing in return – this Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday, we are urging you to keep your dream alive – of finding the job you want and pursuing the career you deserve.
The job you might dream about and feel, “I don’t think I can get this one.”
With the right guidance, you CAN.
Just like Dr. King needed his supporters to stand behind him, march with him, and help instill the confidence necessary to make great changes to our world, we are here to do the same for you and your career. Because we know that facing any great challenge – whether it be starting the career search process from scratch, gearing up for your next interview, acquiring the skills to negotiate a higher salary – is much better done in the company of those who support you, we are here to help you take all the steps necessary to fulfill your dream job goals.
In keeping with the theme of Dr. King’s passionate work – we also urge you to choose the job with a corporate culture that provides you with a fair and just working environment. While more and more light is shined on the need for equality in our workplaces, changes are being made to allow for this to happen. As professional career strategists, we are thrilled to be a part of the movement. In our upcoming Corporate Culture Series, we’ve provided a simple, user-friendly guide to help you get acquainted with the four different types of corporate culture. How you are treated, valued, and thought of within your professional “home away from home” is just as important as how you are compensated.
“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Remember, the dream of a new job IS within your reach. With ReFresh Your Step on your side, marching with you into the dawn of new successful endeavors, we’ll have you surpassing your own expectations – and then some.
Stay tuned for even more career scoop in our upcoming Corporate Culture series, where we will give you an inside look at the four different cultures, and help you decide which one is best for you !
It’s YOUR career: ReFresh. Revive. Renew.
