ched them first. If they did they had signed an agreement that they would pay a $60,000 fine.
I'd never heard of that... sounds like a strange thing for a TPR to agree to, but a great thing for a corporate Recruiter to get in their agreements.
Is this common?…
nteed Senate approval. What I am certain is that by being unwilling to make a concession at this time, the UAW guaranteed that the Senate would NOT approve the measure.
To be sure, this issue is not new and has been brewing for decades for a variety of reasons, some are highly complex and political, some are pretty straight-forward and simple. It was the culmination of non-sustainable union contracts, poor vehicle design, poor vehicle quality, poor market (consumer, environmental, financial, etc.) awareness on the part of their senior management and such that brought us to this point. It was greed and hubris of both union and management, that lead the auto industry to where it is today. Throwing money at this issue is not going to fix it.
That this business debacle is being turned into a political fight is appalling at best. Neither party was willing to step up when it would have made a vlauable difference. This is not about Democrat or Republican, this is about a radically misrun industry by ALL involved. And yes, we consumers play a role - we did not have to buy the SUV's. You can vote on poor decisions in their design centers by NOT BUYING THE WRONG VEHICLES.
Just like people who took mortgages that they knew they could not afford have accountability for the mortgage/housing meltdown. But that is another thread.
I do NOT want a "Car Czar". The Government can't run itself very well and now we want to entrust it with running businesses that are already on the ropes? Thank you sir, may I have another.…
l, just as I had told the candidate, his decision ended up being a mistake. He contacted the client, they have a signed offer and start date. They were calling to let us know that they would be sending us a check, yay!
@Jerry Albright, this is the guy who wanted to change to part-time, wanted 4 more vacation days, etc.…
h, the online forum most certainly does lend to my being a bit more brazen, something I explored in a previous blog post .
Sometimes it makes sense to take a step back and look at ourselves. We know we can't please everyone, and shouldn't want or need to, but that doesn't mean we can't make a concession here or there for the sake of others. Especially when we find ourselves being a bit bullheaded. A heartfelt comment Maureen, thank you!…
However, I will say this: The number of Americans currently collecting unemployment benefits rose to the highest levels they have ever been (since our federal gov't started collecting records on this in 1967). For the week ending 1/17/09, those collecting unemployment were at 4,776,000, eclipsing the prior mark set in November 1982, (4,713,000). We have more data coming out this Thursday, I believe . . . and projections are that job losses and unemployment claims are on a steep rise.
In an environment like this, where there are so many people out of work, so many job losses that are not being recreated yet, etc., there are firms that must do what they have to do to survive. This may mean giving up quite a bit of leverage . .. but the above is extreme. A 2-yr non-solicitation clause would be more of a realistic concession.
P.S. As I write this, our new U.S. President is at a press conference speaking to our loss of jobs and economic struggles.…
are a capitalistic society and like our nice gas guzzlers!!!
If the Unions are not prepared to make concessions, than why should all the rest of us? We bail out banks, insurance companies, mortgage companies and now car companies...l what will be next? Maybe someone could bail me out! I am running two businesses with negative cash flow until things pick up and hopefully can last by reducing my salary, not taking a regular year end bonus, putting all revenue back into the company and innovative cost cutting, but when will it end?
Our politicians need to smarten up and get some business minded people who don't have socialist mentalities to get behind this and do what needs to be done with these companies that operate on greed and corruption. There is nothing wrong with making money or earning a nice big $$$ income or bonus, as long as it is not done at the expense of everyone else.
Now, what about our healthcare dilemma?…
d recruiters who are no longer in the business because they couldn't get over their own ego, were more concerned about being a "Professional" who was due every dime, demanded the highest fees and fought with the client about every referral. Leaving things on the table from time to time means you will be invited back to dinner. That will of course bring forth screams from some of you not to let the client run your business, set your fees or take a gray area referral. My Clients have told me many times that in their business they sometimes cut prices and make concessions in order to build long term relationships. Seems to me it has worked well to hit 80% of a lot rather than 100% of a little for a short time.

room. The reality is that Danny does not speak to everyone, his true audience is the 5% of the people who are going actually going to do something vs. those in the crowd looking to be entertained.
Now, when Danny starts talking about technology this is where I differ from him. About a year ago he was pontificating that everyone would eventually have access to all information, ergo, great recruiting skills will be the only differentiator in the competitive landscape for recruiters. (this is great propaganda for a recruitment trainer). I missed his talk at Bullhorn Live, so I am not sure if he is still toeing that line. From someone who knows technology, that statement shows a total lack of understanding of technology as it relates to the growth of information vs. the capabilities to index and store it. Information growth is occurring logarithmically whereas the ability to store and index is it not. Many people would say that disagreeing with Danny on this point because it furthers Broadlook's interests. Absolutely correct, but you cannot escape the basic math that I am right and he is wrong ;) Sorry Danny.
I really don't care if Danny screws up when he talks about technology. For me, in the past, I was one of the 5% that listened to Danny, took action and became a top recruiter. I still love to be entertained and reminded of some core fundamentals. Thank you Danny!…
