Your time is precious, so without ado, let us plunge into the question: what is the most coveted job in the world? Any organisation carries with it the vision of its owner. IBM workers strive for innovations; Facebook programmers hack new ways for communication; Googlers seek to make life simpler on the web. They all reflect the ideas of the founding CEOs of these companies. These people then go on to shape the work environment. So, it is no surprise that the best job in the world is one that is offered by the best employer.
Who is the best employer in the world? Let’s list some essential ingredients before we answer this question:
- Visionary – one who is driven by a timeless philosophy
- Impactful – one whose work creates ripples in the world
- Noble – someone who works for good
- Autonomous – a boss who has the authority to grant you liberty to use your skills
- Mentor – a leader who wishes to contribute to your personal and professional growth
- Inspiration – a motivator who brings out the best in you
- Honourable – someone who is respected, honest and truthful
- Trustworthy – an employer who can be relied on to pay you justly for your efforts
If you are nodding your head, congratulations! You are a creative person who wants to achieve a higher purpose through your job. What is the best job for you to apply for?
This job is coveted, mind you, so competition is tough. The good news is that there are vacancies (albeit, limited) and interviews are being conducted at least five times a day!
Surprised? This employer offers an incredible package and the name is so popular that no matter where you live, you have been familiarised with it. Who is this best boss?
“He is Allah; there is no god but He, He is the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed; He is the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, the King, the Pure, the All-Peace, the Guardian of Faith, the All-Preserver, the All-Mighty, the All-Compeller, the All-Sublime. Exalted is Allah, above that they associate! He is Allah the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth magnifies Him; He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.” Surat Al-Ĥashr (59:22-24)
Standing up in prayer, five times a day, we are given an opportunity for an interview to ask Him to employ us as one of His faithful servants – the top job in the world!
“It is You we worship and You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path – the path of those upon whom You have bestowed favour, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.” Surat Al-Fateha (1:5-7)
How did you fare in your interview today?
