We Want Your Crazy Recruiting Stories . . . Again!

Matt Deutsch

Last year, Top Echelon held its first-ever “Craziest Recruiting Story of the Year” Contest.  And now we’re having another one!

Yes, I know.  It’s only August.  We have almost five more crazy months to go in 2011.  However, that’s just going to add to the fun, because we’ll have a larger pool of stories to evaluate—and to share with you.  If there’s one thing that recruiters love, it’s reading about crazy recruiting stories . . . that happened to some other recruiter.

First and foremost, the rules: just like last year, there are three ways you can submit your “Craziest Recruiting Story”:

  1. You can email your story to marketing@TopEchelon.com.
  2. You can post the story by including it in the comments section at the end of this blog.
  3. You can give me a call at (330) 455-1433, Ext. 125 and relay your story to me.

The deadline for submitting your “Craziest Recruiting Story of 2011” is midnight on Saturday, December 31.  We’ll announce the winner during the first part of January in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog and also on “Top Echelon TV” (which still exists, we’re just taking a summer break, thank you very much.)

In the meantime, we’re going to continue publishing some of the stories from last year that didn’t win, as well as any stories that recruiters submit that didn’t occur this year.  After all, some recruiters just enjoy sharing their experiences with others, especially if those experiences almost have to be seen to be believed.

As crazy as last year was in the recruiting industry, I’d be willing to bet that this year is even more so.  Bizarre behavior is probably the rule, rather than the exception.  Sharing crazy stories of bizarre behavior can be a cathartic exercise of sorts.  It’s good to get stuff like that off your chest—not to mention off your desk.

So sit back, relax, and take a deep breath.  Tell me your tale.  The doctor is in.
