Liposuctioning unwanted blubber out of pampered Los Angelenos may not seem like a dream job, but it has its perks. Free fuel is one of them.
"The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel--and I have more fat than I can use. Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly but they get to take part in saving the Earth."

; however, his story did bring to mind a critical connection to recruiting...
You know all those resumes in your possession (whether electronic or otherwise)? Are you really taking advantage of them in your recruiting efforts?
Have you converted them from ATS fodder to CRM fuel?
Are you sending all of them regular newsletters about the sectors in which you practice?
Have you even done a merge/purge on them or are they simply taking up space?
Do you let them know about all your openings when you receive them and ask them to become your extended eyes and ears?
I simply don't know why recruiters brag about the size of their resume databases when they aren't doing anything with them...well, I do but this is a family website and community.
