Early this morning while listening to the radio on my way to the gym, I heard the most amazing ad for the New York Times Classified. Bear with as it was early but the crux of the ad stated that whether you’re a CEO or looking for an entry-level position (I distinctly remember the CEO but am a bit foggy on the entry-level), the New York Times Classified is the answer.
Fair enough – although I was chuckling about companies searching for their next CEO through a print/net ad (yes, I know it can happen and it sure might help one’s efficiency ratio). I also wondered if CEOs found through the Times were Democrats with overt environmental agendas for their new employers; I just couldn’t fathom the possibility that a Republican CEO would even READ the Times. Yes, I do make myself laugh.
But then I heard it – I didn’t laugh and I didn’t scream out loud – I was proud that I controlled myself…”So if you’re looking for job or if you’re a Human Resources Director looking for your company’s next CEO…” The recruiting word was NEVER mentioned – no Recruiter, Executive Search Consultant, Vice President of Staffing – nothing…just Human Resources Director.
In the hours since I heard this ad, I have recovered. I feel better. I’m resolute (lol). I realize how long and hard the road will be. But persevere we must. I know we’re going to be a powerful force…
