Random Thoughts On Recruiting – When It Rains, It Pours

September 10, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

We had a rash of activity today with multiple offers and strong positive interviews that can produce offers.  When it rains it pours.  I’d like to see a lot more rainin’ and pourin’ than we saw this summer.

The problem in challenging business conditions is that it is very difficult to develop consistency.  So even if things are going well it seems to come in pockets of good surrounded by pockets of bad.  That’s fine in the end because it all evens out, but the challenge is to maintain strong activity through those slower pockets in order to survive the slow pockets and be in a position to thrive as things get better.  Stress, worry, and getting pulled in all sorts of directions can be an enormous waste of time and energy.

So while this was a good day and we’ve seen plenty of bad days, I want to make sure that we keep a big picture perspective and look at the overall business.  Here’s to more rain.
