So, instead of me writing a blog- I thought it would be great if the RBC Community wrote a blog.  Make a comment by sending in your best one liner.  Let's get as many as we can and then we can have Tim & Noel publish it.  Be creative.  I'll start it-

You know you are a recruiter when you are more concerned about how target company is doing instead of your own.

You know you are a recruiter when all your bill collectors, and family, know which of your monthly checks has your commission on it.
