During this holiday season please remember that friends do not let friends get drunk and sing Christmas Karaoke.
For some smiles let's play you know you are a recruiter if...
You know you are a recruiter if you go to a party, meet a new person ,when they tell you what they do for a living you ask them how long they have been there. If it's less than a year you immediately think..not recruitable yet, then ask them how long they worked for the commpany they were with previously.
You know you are a recruiter if someone tells you their brother in law does something with computers and you spend the next twenty minutes asking them if he ever mentioned anything about java j2EE, apache, rational rose and forty other buzzwords they never heard of and you write the brother in laws name on a cocktail napkin but can't remeber the guys name you were talking to.
You know you are a recruiter if you are introduced to someone who is an executive at a company you have been trying to work with for two years and you take party chit chat to the level of stalking and keep arranging to head to the bar everytime the guy goes for a drink.
You know you are a recruiter if you are calling potential clients to find out when the Xmas party is so you can figure out a way to crash it or at least hang out in the lobby of the hotel where it's being held.
Any one care to add some contributions that come to mind?
