Wendy: I just heard that you’re not going to use a recruitment agency to fill the new position.
Pedro: No, I’m not. There are so many Internet job boards out there that I think we can find good candidates without using headhunters.
Wendy: But headhunters do a good job of weeding out people who don’t have the right experience or qualifications.
Pedro: Yes, but they also charge a large commission. I’m going to post an ad on a few major job boards to see what happens. Most of them don’t charge a listing fee so there’s no harm in trying.
Wendy: I predict you’re going to be flooded with applications, and it’s going to take a lot of time to separate the good from the bad.
Pedro: That’s where you come in.
Wendy: What do you mean?
Pedro: You are my assistant, aren’t you?
Pedro: And your job is to assist me, right?
Pedro: Good. Roll up your sleeves and get ready for a busy week!
