Unlike Any Other Job

I'm very proud of the work I do at Incept. I hold the title of Conversational Marketing Expert. And I specialize in the field of blood donor recruiting.

Everyday I make phone calls for top level blood centers all over the country. The work we do affects lives from California to New Jersey and everywhere in between. On a daily basis I talk to hundreds of donors, and I schedule as many of them as I can to come in and donate blood at their local blood center.

Every time a donor goes through with at least a whole blood donation (we'll just call that a "normal" donation) the blood that goes onto the shelves of their donor center can save up to three lives. I ran my numbers for last week today. At a minimum (assuming everyone showed up for their appointments) I saved 213 lives in one week of work. That's 1/4 of my friends list on facebook......

My fiance is a nurse, specializing in cardiac care. She maintains between 4-7 patients health on a daily basis. But only has to "save" the lives of maybe 1 or 2 in a really bad week. (of course the goal at a hospital is to not let them get to that point)

So literally, I save more lives than she does each week, hundreds of times over! Where else do you get to do that?! What other job gives you that kind of opportunity?! I've never heard of one. I LOVE the feeling of accomplishment my job gives me at the end of a good days work.

Do you get that feeling from your job? If not..... maybe you should think about making a change? If you believe in what you do everyday it makes those dreaded hours of 9am Monday morning, and 4pm Friday afternoon a lot more bearable. Think about it.
