Post Before Coffee

I realized late last night that if I am to get two posts in this week I am going to have do two in one day. Like we all do after we get home from a trip I have been playing catch-up all week.

I was just beginning to feel caught up on Friday when I got a phone call from Paul at the office. We had one of our office staff give us her two week notice.

It leaves me in a bit of jam to get someone hired and ready to go in two weeks time, but we have been having some issues with staff and change maybe exactly what we need. I feel sometimes that hiring is a bit like buying a lottery ticket; the possibilities seem so bright when you buy the ticket but as you scrap away that shinny silver layer you are really never sure what you are going to find underneath.

I really like the woman who put in her notice, it was just not the best fit for either of us in the long run. I am going to post the job online today and see if I get a different group of people to hire from than when I put an ad in the paper. Wish me luck.

Later today I am going to get my vacation pictures downloaded and post some of them.

I love your description of a shiney new ticket and then the shine comes off and your not sure what's underneath. A very good and descriptive comparison.

I'm glad you'll get some new staff in there if that is what you need. I hope you find someone quickly.

I was always a horrible judge of character when hiring. I don't envy you the job.

Shannon's right the description of the lottery ticket is perfect.
