There Is No Alternative – You are a RECRUITER!!!

We’re all very different people; we’re not HR Generalists, we’re not Career Counsellors. We’re Recruiters, with a capital “R.”

You know what that means?  Don’t ya?

That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent position in the world. We are the wretched refuse.  We’re underdogs, we’re mutts!  Here’s proof:  your nose is cold.  But there’s no animal that’s more faithful, more loyal, more loveable than the mutt.

Who saw “Marley and Me”?  Who cried at the end?  Nobody cried when Marley dies?  I cried my eyes out.  

So we’re all dog faces.  We’re all very, very different but, there is one thing that we all have in common:  we were all stupid enough to join the ranks of the Recruitment Professionals.  We’re mutants.  There’s something wrong with us.  There’s something very, very wrong with us.  There is something seriously wrong with us.  

We’re staffing specialists, Great Recruiters!  We’ve been kicking ass for more than 200 years.  We’re 10 to 1.  Now, we don’t have to worry about whether or not we practiced. We don’t have to worry about whether the HR Manager wants to have us hung or not. All we have to do-oo is to be the greatest passionate Recruiter that is inside each one of us. Now do what I do, and say what I say, and make me proud.

Go put your candidates to work this week and kick start our economy into the Knowledge Age!

P.S. If these speech sounds vaguely familiar to you, then you are would be OLD enough to remember the movie STRIPES with Bill Murray 😉
