Chris Fields - @New_Resource - was my guest yesterday on The Recruiting Animal Show
I had some problems logging into my show yesterday so there might be a delay on the recording before the show begins. Also, sorry, but Chris called on a lousy phone.
I should note that I also had award-winning guest, Amy Ala back for her third appearance on the show. I asked Amy to come on to counsel me about dealing with job hunters who approach recruiters for help at funerals and other social occasions.
After 10 or 15 minutes I thought we had covered the problem and I ended the show -- much to Amy's chagrin. She said she had a lot more to say. But I didn't know. You see, I've started scheduling two guests for each show and I've been trying to focus each guest on one issue.
I intended to discuss only one issue with Chris, too. But I had read many of his blog postings so when we finished one topic with lots of time left in his segment I just moved on to another. In fact, I should have kept him on longer than I did.
I hadn't reviewed any other issues for Amy so I wasn't ready for more discussion after a quick resolution of the intended topic.
So, I need to schedule three guests in the future or plan to discuss multiple topics with each of two. Sorry, Amy. But give me a break: you're back very soon.
