A revolution in recruiting


"As if job interviews weren't stomach-churning enough, imagine sitting through one while looping around the Navy Pier Ferris wheel.

Top executives from ad agency Havas Worldwide commandeered six of the Ferris wheel's gondolas Tuesday morning to interview job candidates for several dozen positions, giving each applicant two revolutions of the wheel — about 15 minutes — to convince them why they should be hired." [Chicago Tribune]


On the Ferris wheel I went around

In an interview with Michael.

He asked me  when we reached the ground

How I liked the business cycle.

  • I don't know if the economy is so bad that I would go through with this to get a job. A combination of acrophobia and claustrophobia, and a desire to lose my lunch out of one end or the other. But I know several persons who blame this on Obama.

  • In reply to jack:

    That would be the Conservative spin.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    It is a Ferris Wheel, not a top. It probably is the Plutocrat Revolution.

  • Are we admitting the economy is bad?

    The stock market sure had a good run, on the backs of every saver in the country and 9.5 trillion extra dollars of debt. The 1% has gotten fatter, the middle class not so much. 50 million people on food stamps for over 4 years now. Banks fined billions and billions of dollars, but nobody goes to jail (except the one Indian fellow), what did they do that that could be fined well over *250 billions dollars but not go to jail? *Forbes Aug 2014

    In what percent is billionaire Trump? Is he the Heysoos in the next post?

  • In reply to jack:

    He's in the 1% and said we should raise his taxes, Jack.

    I don't fall in love with politicians, so save the Heysoos for those that weep over every O criticism....Jack made a Jesus joke, shocker.

    Nothing funny about what I posted, buddy.
