Tell Josh to step off. The plant needs THREE CUBES EVERY WEEK! No more. Certainly no less. Once. Every 7 days. Not 6. Not 8.
Miles Jennings said:No - Josh Akers told me it would shock the roots. So I have resorted to lukewarm water and a measuring cup. It's like top of mind all the time, I would never forget. Darn tulips. I mean orchids.
Jerry Albright said:Miles - did you remember the 3 cubes yesterday?
have received emails before that actually spoke to my experience and offered me a position that I might possibly be interested in; and by all means I take the time to respond to each and every recruiter thanking them for their interest and giving a referral if I can. It is pretty obvious in this case, however, that there isn't a real recruiter attached to this email.
The lesson that I learned from these types of emails: If I am emailing rather than calling a candidate, I make absolutely, 100% sure that I make that email personal and I speak DIRECTLY to their experience listed on THEIR resume and explain why they would be a good fit for whatever position it is I am contacting them about. That way, I will never end up on a recruiting website as a topic of a heated (ok, lukewarm) debate. :)…
ve shaken your troubles away, put the gourd right side up but making sure the yerba in it is slanted. pour a little bit of lukewarm water on the "deep end" of the mate, wait one minute and then in one swift motion and with your thumb covering the top end of the bombilla (special mate drinking straw) insert it in the moist yerba. Then start pouring hot water 80° to 85° Celsius making sure you don't get the rest of the yerba wet. Drink the hot infusion trough the straw, rinse (we don't do this in Argentina but if you are a foreigner you are allowed) and repeat. Once the yerba on the wet side has worn out, put the straw on the dry side and start pouring there too. A regular sized mate should yield a one liter thermos of water (we are cool down here and not only use Celsius degrees for temperature, we also use the dreaded.... METRIC SYSTEM!!!).
How was that for an explanation.
ut. C.B. and Sandra thank you for the examples that articulate what it's like being in recruiting (50 cold calls, lukewarm responses). I will call some agencies and see how they react.
C.B. regarding getting another ad agency job... well, I think I'm ready for something different, but I definitely think that your suggestion of making a bunch of calls is an excellent one. I'll test the waters and let you know what happens.
I have another question for the group... I was talking to my sister (who's in pharmaceutical sales) this evening and she mentioned that her firm has advised managers recently to stop working with recruiters because the sales talent pool is great right now due to our recent economic struggles (all the layoffs etc.). Their point of view is that they don't need to pay the recruitment fees in this economy. Is this an issue you all have been seeing a lot? And if so how do you handle it? …
