recruiters that request that kind of arrangement but I am reluctant to do that based on the abuses I have seen. I have 11 recruiters in my office and it's sometimes hard enough to get the work/production out of them even when in the office. If I am going to pay a base salary or draw I like to see (not micro manage) they are working at it. As you know most of our best work is done on the phone. We have a call collector in our system that tells you each hour how many calls and time on phone automatically. I understand there are products that can monitor those stats even at home. Straight commission? maybe. Then there is the trust factor. I have seen independent recruiters make a placement and not tell the owner about it. And it was a candidate they sourced while working for a firm on salary. So I am not sure…
se. Take the last word and add something new. Ex: "Cream Soda”, then “Soda Fountain”, etc. (3-5 word phrases often play in as well when your stuck for a two word answer)
It is quick, easy and fun. You'll be surprised at how many new members you will meet just by participating. It just has to get started, so lets just that:

Here it is:
An American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal
Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked.
Inside the small boat were several large yellow fin tuna. The American
complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long
it took to catch them.
The Mexican replied, "Only a little while."
The American then asked, "Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more fish?"
The Mexican said, "With this I have more than enough to support my family's needs."
The American then asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"
The fisherman replied "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar
with my amigos. I have a full and busy life."
The banker scoffed, "I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time
fishing; and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat: With the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats. Eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor; eventually opening your own cannery.
You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then Los Angeles and eventually New
York where you will run your ever-expanding enterprise."
The fisherman asked, "But, how long will this all take?"
To which the banker replied, "15 to 20 years."
"But what then?" asked the Mexican.
The American laughed and said "That's the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions."
The American said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll
to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos."…
