The Italian artist and architect, Michelangelo, said in relation to
“The greatest danger for most of us is not setting our aim too
high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”
For many people, unfortunately, this observation remains all too true.
Sometimes it is our own unwillingness or inability to see our full potential
that holds us back and we stay in a rut, not realising that we are capable of
so much more. At Elk Recruitment, career guidance is a process that we have
been complimented on many times. Our expertise in the recruitment process means

Another quote from Michelangelo is a fitting final say and sums this up
“The marble not yet carved can hold the form of every thought the
greatest artist has.”
