It’s undeniably true when you have the right person in the right job at the right time doing what needs to be done, good things start to happen to good people.
Rather than handing out doles, this “right person” offers free, convenient and educationally meaningful opportunities to create positive change in our lives-a chance to compete in the real world marketplace against others, give it “the best you’ve got”, go home and await the letter carrier.
Now maybe you’ll win that one place on the team or maybe you won’t. If you do, “Congratulations! Get some rest. You start bright and early Monday morning and for God’s sake, don’t be late, but should you receive one of those “I’m sorry but we regret … ” letters, can you still look at the person you see in the mirror and honestly tell him you “gave it your best shot, but somebody else was better. I’ll learn from this. Next time, I’ll be the winner?”
If you lose without learning the improvements you need to make in yourself, you’ll likely lose again.
The BUSINESS EVENT of 2014
It all came together yesterday, Thursday, October 30, 2014 at Block 37, one of the most “happening” retail business venues in Chicago’s historic Loop business district of Chicago.
Overlooking a fabulous fourth floor view of the original Marshall Field and Company Building at the prestigious intersection of State and Randolph, all early indications suggest that Skokie-based “avid networker, dedicated entrepreneur and community organizer” Shalom Klein appears to have done it again.
Coordinating the participation of over 100 Chicagoland employers and ingathering thousands of success-oriented people searching for that long overdue opportunity to prove their worthiness, demonstrate their skills and once again or, perhaps for the first time, count themselves among the ranks of the employed, is an enormous undertaking.
Kudos to Shalom. He just keeps getting better and better.
Whether chosen to mirror the on-going changes in the lives of eager “job prospectors” (a term I heard one of the presenters use at the “Linked In” workshop) or a matter of serendipity, the on-going under construction state of Block 37’s fourth floor added what this writer thought an appropriate thematic ambience in which Chicagoland area employers, beginning with the event’s Platinum sponsor Goldman-Sachs and Gold sponsor Edlen The Power People welcomed a wonderfully diverse representation of over 5,000 ready, willing and able future employees.
