100% of my FOOT in your A_ _

2 Dec

I have never been very good at math; I am not proud of this and if I can deflect blame I would like to say that I had horrible math teachers at my high school in Buffalo, and on a side note one really horrible English teacher whose son was also in my class. I would actually like to go back in time and bitch slap them both and then for my Christmas present this year I would like to bitch slap them again.  Sorry about the rant..now back to the math problem.

I am going to explain why my foot ( I will let them choose sneakers or black dress shoes) should be jammed up all of the 99% who are outside protesting.

I am so proud to be 1 of the 99%. I am not a banker, never want to be one and do not like them. I am not making 100’s of millions of dollars and I do not have a golden parachute. 100% of the time I work to 100% of my ability. I get up every single day on time with a passion and hunger to go to work.  I want to do more and be more successful than the day, the week and the month before. We are trying to help YOU and your friends and loved ones find a better career!! I want to be in the 1%, I strive to be in the 1%, so when I see these dirty, smelly people camping out in front of government buildings and wasting tax payers money it drives me crazy. Roll up your tent, take a shower, shave and cut your hair and go and get a job. Go out and get two jobs and try to make a difference. These ignorant protesters are taking police officers off the streets of our cities, and having to essentially babysit a bunch of non-motivated lazy people.

I have spoken to more candidates these past 2 or 3 years who have said NO to jobs we had, because they are making more money on unemployment. It drives me crazy!!! Get a job, stop wasting my tax money, and do something productive with your life. You deserve to be on the bottom of the 1% of the 99% . You are going to look back and realize that you never made a difference, all you did is motivate people like me and remind me that I NEVER WANT TO BE YOU.

I hope you enjoyed my math lesson this week. To Summarize: I owe 2 people 2 bitch slaps + the 99% really isn’t 99% when you subtract(-) the 1% of the dirty smelly protesters who are making a mess and wasting tax payers money which equals(=) 100% of my FOOT IN YOUR LAZY ASS!!!

You are so Perfect – What Kind of Candidate do you think you are?

7 Jul

Here I go again, bursting your bubble and telling you stuff you don’t want to hear. However, open your eyes and ears because I am speaking the truth! I know it hurts , but it’s the reality of the world we live in. I made this mistake when I was 18 or maybe even 23 years old. But really, if you graduated from college and have been working for a few years, you should not be making this crucial mistake. It’s to the point when I hear it or see it in an email I cringe!! It’s as bad as running your ugly gross nails across a chalkboard.

STOP I repeat STOP telling me and anyone else you are perfect for a job! Because you are not Perfect and nobody is. You might be good or the best candidate for the job today, or a solid fit. Sadly, you might just be good enough for what we need now and we will deal with it later fit. You might even be a good temporary fit or in most cases not a good fit at all. BUT you are never a perfect fit, it just doesn’t happen.

So, tell me your point of contact or your potential new boss that your skills match up well and the culture seems to fit you very well. Say you are excited to be interviewing for this position because you love the industry or the location is close to your home or favorite restaurant.  Say anything, but PERFECT. It’s the biggest turn off to see a seasoned professional, especially an HR professional send me an email and say how he/she is a perfect fit for “said job”. If you have to tell me you are a perfect fit and I cannot not tell that you are qualified for the job by looking at your CV then guess what, you are trying to fit a round peg into a square hole. It just won’t work.

I am telling this to you to help you. If you disagree, let me hear it……..
