We had the good fortune of connecting with Deirdre Orr and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Deirdre, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
What truly makes me happy each day is being in the position to change people’s lives. As a certified career coach and resume writer, I have the privilege of helping job seekers land opportunities of a lifetime. In turn they are able to better provide for their families, have fulfillment in their careers, and most of all they get to do it on their own terms.
I’ve helped thousands of people over my 14 year HR career, but by far I am the happiest when I get an email or text from one of my clients telling me “Deirdre, I got the job!”. No matter where I am when I get those messages I always celebrate with my clients- I even do a little dance I’m so happy!
Happiness truly comes in many ways, but for me knowing that the work that I do is so impactful for others makes me extremely happy each day!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My business has grown tremendously over the past several years. Most recently I’ve been able to connect with other leaders in my industry. Demisha Jennings is a certified resume writer and career coach and she has helped me and my business on so many occasions. I am so very grateful to her and her expertise.
