This is both FUNNY and TRUE!

I know I said I would only post once per week to the blog, but a friend just told me something that I think is worth sharing with you.

Here is the problem…. HOW DO YOU RECRUIT PEOPLE INTO A BUSINESS?

See the answer below:

Put about 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window.

Then send 2 or 3 candidates in the room and close the door.

Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks. Put them in the accounts department.

If they are recounting them.. Put them in auditing .

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks. Put them in engineering.

If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order. Put them in planning.

If they are throwing the bricks at each other. Put them in operations .

If they are sleeping. Put them in security.

If they have broken the bricks into pieces. Put them in information Technology.

If they are sitting idle. Put them in human resources.

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has
been moved. Put them in sales.

If they have already left for the day. Put them in marketing.

If they are staring out of the Window. Put them on strategic planning.

And then last but not least…

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved.

Congratulate them and put them in top management.

    If they blame Al Qaeda for the bricks being there, put them in the White House.

    Put them in mid-management. They can solve all the problems of the little people for you.

    I hate to be picky, but the sentence structure here was distracting as I was reading this. All of the periods that happen after the If…clause should be commas, not periods.

    Other than that, I loved it.

    Only posting so the bunnies won’t get me. I’d probably stack the bricks into miniature buildings and pretend to be Godzilla, knocking them over. I wonder what job I should get…

    really loved the side remarks about you..”he is not sure why he is writing in 3rd person” Really funny! Like your twisted sense of humor! It made Dawn really chuckle. Oh, geez, now I’m doing it!

    I’d sing “Brick House” until the other candidate went insane, then I’d get the job!

    She’s a brick….

    If they are building walls between themselves, give them recommendation letters and send them to US or Israeli army.
