Let's have some fun today and do Mad Libs. You remember this little game? Your family did them on long road trips in the car, leaving from the East Coast and driving ALL the way to Wally World. Just fill in the blanks.
I have been in Corporate Recruiting for _________ (# of years/months). My boss does not have a Recruiting background. In fact he/she had a worked in the __________ (industry/profession).
How did he/she get the job as VP of Recruiting you ask?
That’s a good question. Here is the story.
My boss used to work as a ________(profession/trade) until he/she was caught ________(verb) and then sent to _______ (place) as a result.
When my future Boss got out of ________ (prison…I mean place), he/she called my VP of the HR department. They were ________(adjective) ________(noun) back in the day.
My ________(adjective) Boss was hired!
Soon afterwards that’s when the ________(smelly noun) hit the _______ (object). And, in a big way to.
You see. My boss has zero and I mean no ______( adjective like freaking) clue when it comes to running a Talent Acquisition program. But since he/she is in a position of authority, I am subjected to some of the ________(adjective) ________( noun) imaginable. Like the time I was sent to a Dental Conference in Detroit although I’m a _________ Recruiter. I was totally like what the ________(verb)! Why the ______(bad place) would you send a ________ Recruiter to a Dental Conference?
Because my Boss is a total ________(noun), I am signed up for another conference so I wont be able to attend ____________ (conference like RecruitFest or ERE) because they feel I should learn a lot about Social Media and Horticulture.
But it’s ok. I’m glad I have a job in this __________(adjective) economy.
