Hi Sandy, Lilipip made our video and we couldn't be happier with the work that Lilipip did. Here is their website: http://www.lilipip.com/

Your friend treats dating like a sales process. He is keeping his sales pipeline full. This is a risk trade-off between: a) Narrow focus on one highly valuable candidate so you reduce risk of losing him/her. -vs- b) Increase time on your pipeline for alternatives or filling other positions. I think there is a sliding scale instead of picking only one. If the person is very valuable, only invest 5% of your time on your future pipeline. If the person isn't very valuable, then invest 40% of your time on your future pipeline. It is interesting how they are similar. Dating is like executive search! The catch-22 is that the candidate you are focused on may only be an 8 in a 1-to-10 scale. (A 10 can walk on water) Investing in a future pipeline may net you a 9 or a 10. The world is full of risk arbitrage... -Bryan Bryan Starbuck CEO of TalentSpring, Inc. Resume Semantic search engine http://www.TalentSpring.com http://blog.TalentSpring.com

I agree. I created this Recruiting humor blog because I think we need that outlet in our industry. ;-)
I love Deloitte put this out. I'm glad when companies aren't overly politically correct to the point of not having fun or being able to connect with job seekers. More companies should have videos like this. If I was a consultant, I would have earned respect for Deloitte for this video.
