- Take Control, Be A Donut Maker
By: Rick W. McCain, CPC, Executive Vice President
Back in the early to mid 90's, the economic climate was similar to todays. People were being laid off and fired as companies downsized. As a recruiter, you get calls all the time from people in this situation. What I find interesting is that I cannot remember the last time someone told me they were fired. Now I don't want to imply that everyone ever laid off was really fired for performance, but I find it interesting that no one believes they had anything to do with being let go. The attitude today seems to be that the stars somehow aligned in the wrong direction and now they are out of a job. They were either right sized, downsized, position eliminated, politics as usual or standing in the wrong place at the wrong time but never fired. When someone like this calls me, and they start whining ab!
out the unfairness of the situation, I want to reach through the phone, grab them by the collar, lift them up and scream, "Take control, be a donut maker".
Now can you imagine, you were recently let go, and you call someone that is supposed to be an expert recruiter in your field and he tells you to go make donuts. Your response would probably be to tell the recruiter to go jump in a lake and hang up. Before you too hang up, let me tell you a story.
