From my inbox related to the Leadership Development spot I'm trying to fill at Kinetix:
She and I worked on a number of projects together, and she knows how to get things done, correctly and on the first attempt. <name taken out> is an HR Boatrocker and will have no trouble calling it how she sees it. Her mobile is XXX-313-8108.
BONUS POINTS - she is not a Nickleback fan.
I gotta go... I have a meeting with the Bobs
He basically guaranteed that she's getting a call. She could be the most unqualified candidate ever, I'm calling her based on the framing of the referral.
Let's save some money in 2014 and just do the initial screen for candidates with the following trick question:
"Do you own more than two Nickelback mp3's?" (Check Yes or No)
If you own one, it better be this one (subscribers click through for over the top Nickelback cut)...
