Recruitment.. the divine way !

There was once a human resources manager who lived exactly the way as a HRD Manager should. She made sure that every job she did resulted in a win-win situation.

Unfortunately, one day, while walking down the street she was tragically hit by a bus and she died. Her soul arrived up in Heaven where she was met at the pearly gates by St Peter himself.

Welcome to Heaven said St Peter. Before you get settled in though, it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we've never once had a human resources manager make it this far and we're not really sure what to do with you.

No problem just let me in, said the human resources manager.

Well I'd like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is let you have a day in hell and a day in Heaven and then you can choose whichever one you want to spend an eternity in .

Actually I think I've made up my mind.... I prefer to stay in Heaven.

Sorry, we have rules. And with that, St Peter put the human resource manager in an elevator and it went down to hell...

The doors opened and the human resources manager found herself stepping out onto the putting green of a beautiful golf course. In the distance was a country club and standing in front of her were all her friends - fellow human resource managers that she had worked with and they were all dressed in evening gowns and cheering for her. They ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and they talked about old times. They played an excellent round of golf and at night went to the country club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner.

She met the Devil who was actually a really nice guy (kinda cute) and she had a great time telling jokes and dancing. The human resources manager was having such a good time that before she knew it, it was time to leave.
Everybody shook her hand and waved goodbye as she got on the elevator. The elevator went up and opened back up at the pearly gates and she found St Peter waiting for her.

Now it's time to spend a day in Heaven. So the human resources manager spent the next 24 hours lounging around on clouds and playing the harp and singing. She had a great time and before she knew it her 24 hours were up and St Peter came and got her.

So you've spent a day in hell and a day in Heaven, now you must choose your eternity.

The human resources manager paused for a second and then replied, well I never thought I'd say this, I mean Heaven has been really great and all, but I think I had a better time in hell.

So St Peter escorted her to the elevator and again the human resources manager went down to hell. When the doors of the elevator opened she found herself standing in a desolate wasteland covered in garbage and filth. She saw her friends were dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks. The devil came up to her and put his arm around her.

I don't understand, stammered the human resources manager, yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and we danced and had a great time. Now all there is is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable.

The devil looked at her and smiled... That's because yesterday we were recruiting you, but today you're staff !


Recruiting, whereever it may be, is the same.. so you better have your research and facts ready.
