Inspiration from this post http://www.recruitingblogs.com/profiles/blogs/stop-trying-to-reinve... made us think why not?
"That should be on a T-Shirt!"
Ok, we all have our thoughts, ideas, sayings, images, lists, etc. Please submit to us your best and worst ideas for T-Shirts you think we should have in Recruiting.
We will select a winner, create the shirt and determine the winner or winners.
Bring it on!
Please enter your T-Shirt ideas below, with any images, and lets see what we can make of it.
In 1998. I was contracting for Tandem (as it was being "borged" by Compaq, before Compaq was "borged" by HP) in SIlicon Valley. Anyway, we had lots of big job fairs then- hundreds of companies,thousands of applicants, swag "off the hook", etc. One of these was right when the movie "Men in Black" came out. The movie had this.
I wanted our recruiting team to have black t-shirts that said:
RECRUITERS IN BLACK
from the Scum
of the Valley".
They didn't go for that idea.
Also while I was there, I thought we should give out as job-fair swag a "certain product" reflecting the joined Tandem/Compaq organization. On this "certain product" would be the name "Condem". You can guess what that "*certain product" would have been. They didn't go for that one, either... Hard as it may be to believe, they kept me contracting there for 10 months.
* it would have been doubly appropriate considering what many of us Tandemers thought about what Compaq was doing to the Tandem corporate culture.
Oh these are good....very good. I like the third one Sandra...hilarious
