"Please join us for Telefónica’s International Volunteering week” said the article on our Intranet, “You’ll make a difference” they said.
Do you know I have never volunteered before? I think I have always wanted to, but the challenge with balancing work and home is that sometimes life just gets in the way. I read an article that came out on our Intranet with the ask for people to help conduct “Mock” interviews as part of ‘The Big Interview’ at our HQ in Slough.
My career in the very early days, like a lot of people I guess, could be described as ‘a little sketchy’, lots of failed jobs just trying to find myself and I thought “I wonder what advice, career advice specifically, I would give my younger self” and during that moment I thought, you know, I want to do this. Just like I’ve always ‘wanted’ to do, so I’m going to do it and I made sure I made the time to do so.
