Yrs truly Malibu Sands recently employed a couple of headhunters to help me in searching for and procuring a new job. As it turns out, security detail (or as my fellow unarmed, undisciplined, unmotivated, and poorly compensated soldiers of fortune prefer to think of ourselves as, protectors of unsoiled litter boxes and defenders of a multitude of competitively priced dried dog food selections) at the local PetSmart (wait, or is it PetsMart?) is not as prestigious, thrilling, or fast paced as it sounds.
As part of this process, the recruiters encouraged me to compile a list of my skills, accomplishments, career goals, and attributes of the position I'd like to attain and organizational culture I'd like to work in. The answers are then plugged into an application that analyzes my responses and recommends those companies that would be the best fit for my capacities and personality.
I thought I'd share with you all the results of this challenging yet wholly worthwhile exercise.
