Jargon & Acronyms Are The Language Of The Bluff Virtually anyone can used jargon and acronyms in a way that sounds persuasive. Don’t be fooled by a recruit who sounds convincing because

Team Work Is Undervalued…Ensure It Is Not Underused By Your Recruit Does your recruit instantly take all the credit for past accomplishments, or is he quick to point out the virtue of the teams
that have supported him in the past? While you want your recruit to be
confident enough to share past successes, there is a fine line between a

these recruits will easily be swayed away from a new job by the next
’something better’ that comes along. Your ideal recruit will fit into
their new role like a superhero fits into a cape. Really question your
recruit to determine if they are a fit for this position. Will they
take to it like a superhero takes to the open sky, or will they
distracted by the next fluffy cloud?
