“Neither rain nor sleet nor dark of night…”

Much like mail carriers, recruiters don’t get much of a break when the weather is crappy and has screwed up transportation around town. We’re expected to report as normal. After all, someone has to be at the office to make phone calls like these:

“Hi, this is Tiffany from [major international staffing firm]. We’ve got a talent scheduled to be out there with you today in your creative department… Yeah, Joe will be a little late this morning. He lives in a basement apartment… yep, it flooded last night. So as soon as he’s done moving all his stuff up off the floor, he’ll be in. Thanks!”

Hope you’re all staying dry and getting your power back.

    It appears that NO ONE in this City bothers to watch the news.
