Which would you prefer if you were an employer?
Someone who is dependable, stable and can stay on for a few years, but is so well used to the comfortable lifestyle that she lacks the drive to exceed the limits of her job description and excel?
Or the person who promises the stars but you’re unsure on whether she’ll stay on for give or take 1-2 years? You think that she’s merely using this job as a jumping board to get into the “glamorous” financial industry but will be disillusioned after she finds out that banking industry is not synonymous to a non-grungy job?
Where can we find a better balance of the two — someone with drive, and yet someone whom you can rely on? These days, we doubt those whose CVs are peppered with job stints that last only a few months…
Sigh, as I’ve said, leave it to fate.
And yet, personally, I find myself leaning towards the tried and true. At this rate, I would like someone who can deliver — not dazzle me with bright colors and lights only to disappoint because they’re out of gas.
Any idiot can promise you the world. But it takes someone with a great sense of responsibility who can deliver it to your feet.
So how about you? Your thoughts?
