parts. If you learn a trick you need to practice it (train train train) so that you can amaze the people around you instead of just merely being amazed yourself. (I realize we have different philosophy)
I believe what Martin and Jim said is more true now than ever. Companies will choose which vendors live or die...…
rrogant. Probably because she was a fat , squatty little girl with the personality of a brick.
I found out that you can't train some old gal in her 50's who doesn't know squat about business and gets pissed everytime she feels dumb trying to talk to an employer or gets pissed and cries when somebody tells her that they wouldn't hire her candidate if he were the last person on the planet.
I found out you can't train a big 8 CPA to run an accounting desk because he thought anybody who didn't have Big 8 background was a loser and he didn't know a good bookkeeper from Adam's Off Ox.
I found out you can't train somebody who is lazy even if they have good BS.
I found out you can't train your best friend if she has her head buried in a Bride magazine and her ultimate goal is to marry Mr. Wonderful who wants her to go Europe this week and Mexico next week.
I found out you can't train most kids right out of school because they don't know what they don't know, want everything now, aren't tournament tough, get their feelers hurt and don't know how to fail and get their little butts back up and do it again.
I found out you can't train somebody who wants to be national in their first six months wants to try and work with every big company in the world, chase the big one for three months and fail instead of placing 15 little ones and making a lot of money.
I found out you can't train a crook who will do anything to make a buck, thinks sales is lying to make a sale, paying a kickback then thinks they are the big schiz while they are destroying your reputation. That one lasted 60 days before i threatened to kill him or have him put in the slammer.
I found out you CAN train almost any sharp young lady who has been through a divorce is looking for a break, has some good sense, a couple of kids to support and wants her W-2 to be bigger than her ex-husband's W-2 at the end of the year.
Can you train a monkey to recruit? Sure if your idea of recruiting is to post a job, read resumes and forward 5 or 6 to a client so the client can pick the one they want. I call those "resume monkeys". There are a whole lot of them in our industry both agency and corporate. they do no harm, they smile a lot, they tweet, blog, facebook, everybody likes them and they move around a lot. The only problem is they think they is one but everybody can use a few of them, it's better than reading all those resumes and sending notes back yourself.
