“What do you want to be when you grow up?” This question usually evokes memories of our childhood aspirations, and for the founders of Giraffe, the answers were simple: A florist, an IT specialist, a surgeon, a famous ballerina and the Secretary of Defense. Though seemingly lofty goals in retrospect, part of this child-like hope for doing great things and changing the world never leaves us. Even now, as adults, many of us are still asking that same question.
Why? Unfortunately, not all of us eventually grow up to become famous performers or high-profile public servants. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be able to put that very same passion into the career that we do choose. That’s where Giraffe comes in: knowing (from experience!) that no two careers are exactly the same, they’re breaking from the mold of the traditional job search to help you discover a more meaningful and enjoyable career path.
