sked him not to. I was forced to tell the client that I no longer represented him and they do as they pleased.
Then when he didn't get the job - he actually blamed me - yelled at me on the phone telling me it was my fault.......I will never work with him again. He then came back and apologized - I accepted it and wished him the best of luck....I've never had that happen to me and it won't ever happen to me again.…
35 in recruiting. I have seen bad economies, booms, and long periods of business as usual. Never have I seen a period of time where people have done the weird shit across the board they are doing now. Here is an off topic example.
A week ago I was driving down the freeway, I ran over something that split a tire, put a dent in my right front door panel and a piece of it flew up and hit my windshield so hard it cracked the windshield. Never saw anything but must have been metal of some sort to do the damage it did and blow a new tire to the point that it was flat by the time I could get off th freeway. I file an insurance claim get a call fron the customer service claims person. It goes like this.
Claims rep: "what happened?
Me: I go through the bove drill.
Claims rep: we're you hurt?
Me: no, just the car,
Claims: any dizziness or headache?
Me: the tire may have been dizzy and the windshield could have a headache but not me.
Claims: what did you run over?
Me: I don't know it must have been something heavy and sharp to do the damage it did, but I didn't see it or I would have avoided it.
Claims: we're you in a rural area?
Me: Amarillo, Texas is pretty rural but as I told you, I was on the freeway, that would be I40 inside the city limits.
Claims: did you suffer any bruises or neck or back injuries?
Me: no lady, as I have told you three times or four. I ran over something. I was inside the car, not hanging out the window looking for stuff on the freeway.
Claims: could it have been those metal vehicle stops used by police?
Me: no dear, I was not evading arrest, I was in the middle lane on a Sunday afternoon, on my way to the mall.
Claims : could it have been those things on the side of the highway?
Me: no, not unless they have stared putting "drunk bumps" in the middle lane inside the city limits.
Claims: we're you drunk or drinking?
Me: no, the last time I went shopping drunk was last Christmas. I bought a horse so I never shop drunk anymore.
Claims: could you have run over n animal?
Me: lady I think I would have noticed an animal on I40 in the middle lane on Sunday afternoon inside the city limits. I also can not imagine any animal that could cut a truck tire, put a dent the size of softball in the door and a piece of it hit the windshield hard enough to chip the corner and cause a crack to go half way across. If there is such an animal one would think I might have seen, fur, feathers or fins flying after impact.
Claims: how much damage is on the front bumper?
Me: none, I ran over something, I didn't hit anything.
Claims: do you need a rent car.
Me: no I still have the horse I bought last Christmas.
Claims: so the horse was not hurt?
Me: no but thank you for asking?
Claims: is there anything else we can do for you?
Me: No, just tell me where the appraiser is located?
Claims: oh sure, has the horse been taken to the vet?
Me: lady, the horse is fine, I'm fine, the truck is not fine.
Claims: what is the make and model of the vehicle?
Me: Cadillac EXT, 2008.
Claims: is that an SUV?
Me: no, it's an EXT.
Claims , is that an SUV?
Me: no, it looks like a chèvre avalanche.
Claims: I thought you said it was a Cadillac.
Me: Click, dial my agent, " hey Matt where do you get these weird people who work in your claims center.
It is everywhere, somebody tell me is it. Terrorist Attack?…
people criticize me as it helps me to improve next time and prove them wrong. I never try to compare two individual but try to compete with some one better than me. I like when I am given a task that I have never done or I have never heard about it as it has the challenge of knowing the things first and then try to solve it. So for me the things that work is criticism, competition and challenges that work for me better than an thing.
e proceeded to stubbornly argue with me that "if they don't see me for me, or accept me for who I am, then they have a problem." Oy vey! Two weeks later she came back to see me and thanked me and apologized. She had changed her email address... and she got the job. I got the same reaction when I advised students about tattoos and piercings. The old "you can't judge a book by the cover" argument. Well, honey, all they see right now is the cover and that cover ought to be pretty nice to get them to open the book.…
