10 Year Challenge

Instagram has been flooded with pictures of people comparing themselves from today to 10 years ago with the #10YearChallenge. It gave us a good chuckle in the office, but also took us on to the discussion of where we were in our careers a decade ago.

One of us was working their first ever job, courtesy of the sports retails shop JJB (for those who can remember the brand). Another one of us was working in Travel Recruitment and although the basics of the role hasn’t changed much, the travel industry has A LOT!

Our youngest member of team JPRS was a mere 12 year old, who hadn’t even chosen her options for her GCSE’s let alone think about what job or career she might have wanted. Another was recovering from her repping days with First Choice and was in her 2nd year of working in a Product department for a travel wholesale business.

So there you have it, a little insight to our backgrounds.

Why don’t you take the time to ask your colleagues where they were 10 years ago? You might just learn something about them.
