Lots of cheesy stock photos convey the image of recruiting, but this postcard (below) I just got in the mail isn’t one of them. People in business suits don’t hold hands, let alone cheer—and if they do, I don’t want to be any part of that team. So to the firm that sent it to me, kindly remove me from your list.
Related story: the editor of National Mortgage Professional magazine and I were brainstorming an image for a recruiting story I wrote just a couple days ago. We nixed stock footage in favor of a homemade image related to the story’s theme. Some may not like it, but I’ll take it any day over suits holding hands.
