Just reading about all of the plans to desecrate the NHS or the health amendments or whatever they’re calling it. Why can’t we just get these guys back? Nothing can go wrong with Atters at the helm, I even thank him for my uni results (I managed to crowbar him in to every single one of my exams, a fact of which I am immensely proud).
As we build up towards the £10m funeral this week, I thought I’d share this from the UK government’s own website…greatest PM of the twentieth century compared to Churchill and Attlee???
What’s this to do with career advice? Not much, except this - if you say something is true often enough then enough people will believe it to make the truth practically irrelevant.
There is a tenuous analogy with our careers here - we need to work your way through the corporate / organisational BS to find the truth - to find what is right for us rather than simply listening to what others tell us.
Recruitment consultants get paid when candidates are placed. There’s usually a rebate period for 3 months, during which period the recruitment fee, or a percentage of it is paid back. Most times it can take 6 - 9 months for a new employee to find out what a company is really like. An unscrupulous recruiter will use this to their advantage…
Always bear in mind that recruitment is a sales job…so DYOR…think for yourself…what seems great may not actually be so…just because the common orthodoxy states that company x is a great place to work, don’t automatically believe what you have been told.
Wise words from a man many consider to have been the greatest Prime Minister the UK has ever had. The poor should not have to rely on the charity of the rich, instead society collectively should ensure that all have the tools and opportunities to live a good quality of life, and a chance of success. That is what our taxes should be used for.
