True Calling

Our experts share...

Be Curious. Stay Curious.
Curiosity is central to success, effective strategic thinking, and fostering innovation. 
For this reason, I stay curious by actively listening for insight, by identifying and challenging personal biases, and by focusing through the lens of other people's perspectives. 

 

It's important to find a friend at work. Ruby and Mary are a great support for each other no matter what comes at them each day. One in two people at Fraser Health report they have a best friend at work. After all, it is the support we all need. 

Set up a LinkedIn profile – it’s a great way to network within your industry groups and build professional connections.

Be in gratitude. Challenging situations will show you your strengths – be grateful they did. And show thanks to those who help you (or others) by a smile, Thank You email, text; yes, even a hand-written note!

Try to give specific examples from past experiences. I appreciate when a candidate can give an honest example of how a past experience shaped him/her as an employee or an individual.
