The #recruiter asked his two remaining candidates a final question.
‘Can you square a circle for your clients?’
The first candidate was very eager to get the job.
‘I do anything for my clients. If it means to square a circle I do it!’
The second candidate was more reluctant.
She paused for a moment.
Then she replied:
‘I can’t square a circle but I can help my clients in the best possible way!’
The recruiter smiled.
‘Never make a promise you can’t live up to. Be honest, be genuine and be of help’
The second candidate was hired
We live in a real world. Be real and be realistic
