Valentine's Day Job Seeker

by Sital Ruparelia

Roses are red, violets are blue
Here's a Valentine's poem, I wrote just for you
Maybe you're searching for "the one" job you'll truly love
A job so special, it fits like a glove

Maybe you've set your sights on becoming a career changer
To start a new business and become an entrepreneur 

Or maybe you're just looking for one last romance
To grab some "me time" and precious work-life balance

Alas, the secrets of career success are no different to finding personal joy
Where the winners get nowhere by being shy and coy

To find that job, promotion or brand new lifestyle
You need to step up a gear and go the extra mile

Step out of your comfort zone and step out onto the wire
Take some risks and the occasional flyer

Stop hiding behind your inexperience and personal history
And build a competitive advantage around your unique story

Stop procrastinating and waiting for your ducks to line up in a row
The time will never be "right" — so go on, just have a go!

Stop putting off the dream until "someday"
When the best time to get started is, in fact, today

The world is waiting for you to do the work you love
And maybe this poem is "the sign" you've been waiting for, from "up above"

For today is Valentine's Day, a time for celebrating great romances
So start scaring yourself by taking a few more chances!

Happy Valentine's Day, folks!
