Fire and Hire


Got this nuggets
from an old sage of mine
in the then promising youthful times
(thinking I would be soon a fire-and-hire officer but not)

Be cautious of fabulous cv/resume
be aware of glittering diplomas
overload certificates

overqualified is also disqualified
and not all of these are
fitted for the hire

how would you hire
to avoid mis-hire? (a barrier for a long-term goal)

Weed not out
those who would adapt new tricks
in a fast changing work place

they are a handful if not few


How?

I believe in your instinct;
my intuition says

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
