Another good morning just like yesterday with my blood glucose level again at 81, but weight dipping down slightly to 169.4. I ended up doing 30 minutes on the treadmill yesterday in the late morning but did not work any resistance training. I remember posting several months ago that I felt I was having problems with inflammation when I was do cardio. It turns out that this was wrong. The inflammation was because I was pushing the cardio to the limit by walking a hard 5 miles at a time. Since I have dialed that back to just 2 miles or about 30 minutes it is working well.
Today the sun will be shining brightly and I am looking forward to temperatures in the low 70’s. It will be a perfect day to get out and do a little hiking or mountain biking. I haven’t decided which to do yet, but either way I will be spending some quiet time in nature. Without a job to go to each day I have in the house a little too much longer than desired and it will feel good to get out.
Yesterday I met with a recruiter from a company called Aerotek. They specialize in finding good employees for companies who support the airlines industry. It was a positive experience as I sat down with Joe and discussed the whole process of how his industry works and I now have a better understanding of why I was having so many problems with finding employment. For a company to go through the hiring process they cave to have a human resources department with employees who are very well educated in the process. There are so many legal issues now that makes it very difficult to just hire someone. The staff and the process itself is expensive. It actually costs less to use a temp agency like Aerotek to do this work for them. Once an employee is hired they continue to work for the temp agency for around 90 days and they company then has the opportunity to hire the individual at that point or ask the temp agency to replace them. The company can do this comfortably until they find the right person for the job and not have to worry about legal ramifications of letting the person go. It makes perfect sense and it seems that this is the way the job market has been heading and it’s becoming more popular.
For the individual seeking employment a temp agency makes the whole process so much easier also as they are only working on their resume and screening process once, rather than doing each time they apply for a position. Once they sit down with a recruiter and do all of the hard work the recruiter takes it from there and uses the information on hand by creating key words that would apply to the individuals talents and qualifications for certain position.
Now before I give bragging rights to this whole process lets see how well it actually works as to finding me a place to hang my hat.
