You have a purple hippo request

You have a purple hippo request

For several years I was in the recruiting world looking for the best hospitality sales talent.  I had used social networking sites to uncover candidates in our industry. 

To this day, I still receive requests from former candidates for extremely annoying and inappropriate requests. The Purple Hippo Request was entirely made up by me. We will see the power of the Internet if it catches on? I dare you to send me (  one!

It amazes me that so many people are continuously using these sites instead of doing their jobs. If you are in the market for a new position, be aware that some recruiters may unofficially check out your “Internet presence.”

Would you hire someone that consistently posts a need for a margarita everyday at 3 p.m. because they are BOOMS (bored out of my skull)?
