PASADENA STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2020

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESUMBERTO RISPOLI, HARIBOUX, WINNER: “I watched film of this horse before I rode him the last time (a second place finish in the Eddie Logan Stakes Dec. 29).  You could see that if you put him in the race early, he will pull quite a bit.  We decided he needs to be taken off the pace and it’s best for him. Today, I was one hundred percent sure there was enough speed in the race, so Jeff said, ‘Okay, take him back.’  We were able to save ground and coming around the last turn, a gap was open, so why go around?”   TRAINER QUOTESJEFF MULLINS, HARIBOUX, WINNER: “Umberto’s done a great job with him.  He’s a very studious guy and he’s a strong finisher. He’s been able to take him back, drop the reins and gets him to relax very well.  He showed a nice turn of foot today and he’s looking like he’s going to be a really nice horse.“(Hariboux) is just an honest hard trying little horse and he gives it to you every time.”MARK COHEN, RED BARON’S BARN, HARIBOUX, WINNER: “It looked like we were three to five around the far turn and luckily he got the job done.”NOTES: The winning owners are Red Baron’s Barn LLC or Rancho Temescal LLC.last_img read more

Your Feelings on Recruiters

first_imgMy recruiting style hardly changes when I approach a prospective candidate regarding an open position even though I’ve received every possible reaction there is to offer. One day I am called a savior and the following day, an annoying solicitor. Life is like a box of chocolates… I guess. Depending on the person’s industry, job situation or general mood, you will receive different reactions so be prepared for anything.To get a better idea of how my peers of different ages, backgrounds, and geographical locations feel about being contacted by a recruiter, I sent out a brief survey. Feel free to formulate your own “recruiting tips” with these results. Out of all the people who were approached by a recruiter, 71% claim they’re open and receptive. 13% feel annoyed and choose to ignore recruiters. 16% either don’t care or are on the fence about the whole process.When asked about the preferred mode of communication, the results were a bit more balanced. 43% prefer to be called on the phone, while 57% think Linkedin or email is the way to go. Traditional phone fans feel that online messages are impersonal and could be phishing attempts. Linkedin/email lovers appreciate the ability to speak risk-free, discretely, and openly at work about such sensitive topics. These figures were taken from a pool of roughly 100 working professionals. Who knows what these stats really mean in the big picture? I’m sure they will change over time. This could very well be indicative of today’s economy. I’d imagine that at a time when jobs aren’t secure, pay cuts are increasing, benefits are slashed and the like, that people are much more open to weighing their options.But then again, when times are good, we also get greedy and assume the sky’s the limit, which could prompt one to explore something different and potentially better. As the old saying goes, the grass is always greener on the other side. There’s no way of knowing right now, so look forward to my comparative analysis once the economy has fully recovered!VicPS – I’d like to openly admit that Devon Warwick of OpenView Labs composed a fantastic blog last week that inspired me to conduct this week’s research!AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
