    Thats a 1/2 glass full approach. That is how I look at it.

    For a living I torture Botond.

    I agree. . . with reservations

    It is a good idea to let them know you are still interested, but never a good idea to turn into a stalker. I am notoriously awful at these delicate negotiations, but I just wanted to let you know we're all hangin' out here wishing you success.

    I am surprised at how much your situation seems to have affected so many of us. But then again, maybe I'm not surprised. I just wish there were something we could do besides wringing our hands in hopeful anxiety.

    But at least we're doing plenty of that!

    You call them Allstate types right now and tell them if they don't hire you, all your friends are going to cancel their Allstate policies in support of you.

    Never mind that I don't actually have an Allstate policy...I can fake it!

    Instead, we will vehemently deny knowing you if they come a-knockin' around here--"No, that's another Autohaus altogether!"--since it can't be a good thing to have us miscreants, gearheads and hoons among your known associates. :D

    Don't lose heart if the hunt moves slowly at the end of the year. Sometimes you run into year-end hiring freezes or other nonsense, then in January things suddenly jump back into high gear.

    Usually around Feb-Mar employers set budgets, forecast etc... for the year so that is when job sites will be flooded with new positions. I know I have asked this question a zillion times but is the cca hiring? :)

    Hiring doldrums and the CCA

    I think we ran the financials in the November issue-or October?-and the Club again lost money. I know the Board wants to tighten up the costs around here, which may affect Roundel budgets as well as other areas of Club activity.

    That said, I am certainly not the one to ask about Club positions; that would be El Jefe, the boss, the capo di capi, Frank Patek II.

    What we need is for every BMW CCA member to go out and recruit one new member.

    What shocks me is that we're overlooking the biggest source of recruiting of all

    Why not offer one year of BMW CCA membership with every new BMW, MINI, and Rolls Royce sold in North America?

    Am I to understand that BMW can't absorb a $48 membership cost into the price of a $28,000+ automobile?

    Especially when Hyundai is offering the owner's manual on a free Ipad with every Equus they sell?

    If Hyundai can afford to include a $499 Ipad on a $60,000 car, why can't BMW offer a $48 club membership with theirs?

    Wait a minute! You're getting PAID to do it? And I've been doing it for FREE?? :eek:

    Well folks, I was just informed by Allstate that I didn't get the position. I guess I am not economically viable.

    Dag nab it then!

    I'm definitely going to cancel that fictitious Allstate policy I have!

    I don't suppose you have any experience managing a comprehensive environmental protection program for a municipality, do you?

    I heard there was a Mayhem guy here, but he keeps deleting his threads.

    Try not to get your panties in a bunch, Michgndr89

    Touche. Sounds like someone is a little too sensitive about threads being deleted.
