NOTHING to give out to you. Annoyed HR person: "Want a job order? Here! Have 20!!!" (It does not mean that you'll see a fee from us......ever!)
Few people who do not know you won't value you, and do not care if they waste your time. Along those lines: I require a modest non-refundable deposit from new clients. I know that I am NOT going to get it most of the time. I accept that. I am very happy to let those "clients" unwilling to put skin in the game waste your time. :)
Here's my carrot: If you pay, I will bust my ass for you, and your deposit will show me the same level of commitment (skin in the game) that you want me to have towards your search.
Look at it another way: Review all the contingency orders you received and worked on over 12 months. Some of those orders weren't real, right? Meaning you NEVER EVER EVER had a chance of earning a fee on them. Which ones? You don't know, of course. My approach at least eliminates those that will waste my time.
Do I get fewer new clients? Absolutely...but I get partially paid ( I like the term "container" contingency/retainer? ) on ALL of them.Every check is a client's commitment....and I know ALL OF MY ORDERS are R-E-A-L. :)
Those struggling....there's a reason for it. Maybe you're selling to the wrong person? Maybe your client doesn't agree with you on your value. Maybe you have the wrong clients. I don't know...I am not you, but every time I read "....and this HR person f*cked me"....I want to throw-up all over my computer, reach into my screen and SHAKE you. If you don't respect yourself and your value...why should they? …
of black holes destroying stars, a long-sought phenomenon that provides a new window into general relativity.
Researchers at New York University sifted through data on more than 2 million galaxies to search for signs of flares that result when a star is torn apart by a black hole.
Cosmologists have calculated that, on occasion, a star’s orbit will be disturbed in such a way that it passes very near the super-massive black hole at the center of its galaxy—but not so close that it is captured whole. Such a star will be torn apart by the extreme tidal forces it experiences.
While some of the star’s matter falls into the black hole, much of it continues in chaotic orbits, crashing into itself and producing intense radiation lasting days to months. These phenomena are called stellar tidal disruption flares.
