Please don't misinterpret my thoughts here!! I'm not saying that making $ is a bad thing and that you shouldn't have goals! I'm only standing on my holiday soap box because even though having served my country and being a proud veteran of the US ARMY... I've been the one in the past to discount what I HAVE for what I want more of...It's not the circumstances that matter as to WHY you "reflect"...it's what you chose to do with WHAT you see looking back at you (Todd Mauser 12/19/2011). I chose to apologize, to forgive, AND to appreciate ;-)
HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!

One of the most ridiculous things I've witnessed over the years is when a staffing firms hires a new sales person off the street with zero staffing experience and then has them out selling in less than a week! OK, I get that its not rocket science, however, it ain't gravy either! Do yourself and the credibility of the recruiting industry a favor...at the VERY LEAST put a chair next to your very best recruiter and have your wet-behind-the-ears sales rep shadow that recruiter for at least 3 weeks. It's hard enough to establish credibility in our industry...it's that much harder to get it back!
Another positive spin-off happens from entrusting your recruiter to "break-in the new guy"... you've started creating a sense of ownership with your recruiter! That's PRICELESS!!!
