A doctor, a Recruitment Consultant, a little boy and a priest

A doctor, a Recruitment Consultant, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight, on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble.

In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining.

The doctor grabbed one and said “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live,” and jumped out.

The Recruitment Consultant then said, “I’m a recruiter and recruiters are the smartest people in the world. We help candidates get jobs and make recruitment business owners rich, I deserve to live.” He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, “My son, I’ve lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace.”

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, “Not to worry Father. The smartest man in the world just took off with my back pack.”

The point of the story is what people say and what they actually do, are not always the same.

If you have recruiters who say they are going to bill and haven’t done yet, it maybe worth considering doing something different to get business in, as what you are relying on is not working.
