NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -02/14/12)- Putting the power of precise recruiting technology in the hands of candidates and recruiters, OneWire® today announced details of its Valentine's Day Love Your Job contest. The contest asked fans of the company's Facebook page to share stories of why they love their job, with the winning entry to receive a Valentine's Day gift basket.
"With Valentine's Day on the horizon, we decided to ask our Facebook friends to tell us what they love about their jobs," said Brin McCagg, co-founder, president and COO of OneWire. "As OneWire works to match employers with qualified candidates, we're also in the business of ensuring that candidates find the jobs that will keep them engaged and satisfied. The contest provided great visibility into exactly what employees find most rewarding about their positions."
Participants came from a wide range of industries and positions. Despite the differences, though, each submission highlighted the qualities that give these individuals the most satisfaction on the job. In keeping with the Valentine's Day theme, one respondent explained how much she enjoys her position as a couples therapist, helping people keep their love alive.
With common themes among the entrants, such as enjoying working with co-workers, working independently, learning new skills, and doing work that is personally fulfilling, the contest highlights the importance of loving what you do. Without a doubt, people who love their jobs are more likely to stay engaged and continue to work for their employers for a longer period of time. However, many businesses find it challenging to hire well-qualified people who will love their jobs.

At the same time, candidates are matched to jobs for which they have the relevant skills and experience, making them more likely to enjoy their positions.
"The goal of our 'Love Your Job' contest is to highlight the qualities that employees find most fulfilling about their positions," said McCagg. "When employees love what they do, they are more likely to perform at a higher level and remain with their company. OneWire's mission is to match candidates with the positions for which they are most qualified, ensuring that companies hire employees who will love their jobs."
