Finding an internship or job is the top priority for our students at the International Recruitment Forum. The employer you choose has an important role to play in supporting your work-life balance which in turn, contributes to your overall health and wellbeing. 

According to Robbie Fenlon, a Swiss-based Mindfulness Expert and Integral Coach, "Mindfulness is about taking ourselves off auto-pilot and looking after yourself with a more caring attitude. Mindfulness helps us become aware of when we need to focus on self-care. It’s not a cure, but an important part of our self-energy management." Mindfulness won’t solve all of your problems but is a very important first step to recognising how to care for yourself. Above all - Mindfulness will help you notice.

Taking the steps to match yourself with the right employer requires that you have a strong understanding of yourself.

 

1. Ask questions up front about the work environment, company policies and overtime during the interview.

Because it’s important to know before! Do the company policies meet your work/life balance expectations? What hours are expected of you?

 

2. Find a team that balances your strengths and weaknesses.

You can’t be great at it all - that’s why we work in teams. And finding a great one means the right balance of skills across the board.

 

3. Find a working environment that matches your temperament.

Hospitality is often a high-stress environment that requires quick thinking and a lot of movement on your feet. Do you thrive in this type of environment? Do you enjoy daily contact with clients?
