Star Trek taught me how to be a better Recruiter…

SpockTraits you can learn from Star Trek that can help you become a better recruiter and “Live Long and Prosper”:

  1. James T. Kirk – Go with your gut.   Use your experiences and gut feelings.  
  2. Spock – Make the Logical Decision.   Most of the time the logical decision is the right decision.
  3. Dr. McCoy (Bones) – I’m a Recruiter not a miracle worker.
  4. Montgomery Scott (Scotty) – Know how the Recruiting engine works and how all of its components run together.
  5. Nyota Uhura – Speak many languages.   Not all positions/industries are the same.
  6. The Enterprise – It is the main structure behind us.   Use and take advantage of all of your available resources.

Can you think of any others?
