Day 4: Now I have no weekend

This week's marketing campaign was such a smashing success that my Macbook Pro with retina display will be chugging some electrons this weekend. 

Somehow, someway, we're gonna need to squeeze around 30 or so experienced Program Managers our of DB to present on four new JO's....all pretty close siblings to one another so there should be pretty good synergy.  One of the FOUR NEW CLIENTS I found this week also is seeking an engineering liason with Korean language skills so they can…

Defining “fat and complacent”

Please indulge me while I tell three stories to clarify words I stated a couple weeks ago.

My first real job with a real paycheck was at a McDonald’s in Whitmore Lake, Michigan, when I was 15 years old.   The Manager is one of the most serious people I had encountered by that age.  Before allowing me to work in the kitchen, I was handed a plastic bag and told to go outside and clean the property.  It was mandatory to call it “trash” as we were not allowed to use the word “garbage”. …

Answer:  Only a 1 minute 58 second message from the Vice President of Sales at a HUMUNGOUS Tier 1 automotive supplier expressing that his Program Management group is in dire need for NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT THREE Program Managers here in Day-twah!  (That's Detroit for outsiders.)

So I waited a couple hours because I'm so busy and gave him a…

Day 2: Heartburn

Holy Mackerel.  Talk about being rusty. 

My program on Day 1 and 2 has been to tackle all office things first thing and move on to my 30 day reboot-my-desk deal.  I get between 30 and 100 applicants each and every day.  I have to review each resume one-by-one.  It took seven hours on Memorial Day to get through about 240. 

These resumes are coming from all corners of the planet and only roughly 50% of them are remotely relevant to our industry.  Some may find this amazing but I…

Day 1: Starting from Scratch

And so it goes that sometimes we're our own biggest critic.   I've spent the last four and half years pulling together all of the most robust tools I could find to create "The Avengers" version of a boutique recruiting office. 

We have four busy-body recruiters pounding away on the phones, moving and shaking, making money calls, and always marketing.  I believe our system is unique and we approach everything we do with as must honestly and perseverance we can muster. 

Through a…
