I'll define what I mean by these terms. "The Controller" is a job seeker that is ruled by doing everything right. Heshe has read all of the appropriate books Donte Jackson Jersey , done a good job composing a resume, but is still unemployed.

"The Controllee" has also read all of the best books about the job search, has a credible resume, but is still without work.

What can each of them do to make their job search campaign: WORK.

The person who is controlling what they think is a good campaign is not stopping to: Polish and have great inter-personal skills; doesn't send a thank you note and doesn't ask for the job.

The person who is being controlled

by the process needs to assess their campaign and see what they are leaving out. Is their networking going well, is their sufficient follow-up? Is there room made for the unexpected and spontaneous? (Flaws that the controlling person needs to be aware of too.)

These are my remedies. Plan DJ Moore Jersey , plan, plan, follow-up, send out thank you cards, give as much as you take; and look at most rejections with a bag of salt. By all means have some fun with the whole danged search! Flexible people get most jobs.

Meeting Mickey Mantle - His Idol Sports Articles | February 21, 2005
Meeting Mickey Mantle would be a dream comes true. A dream realized for Dan on his 38th birthday, when his wife honored him with a week long stay at the Yankee Fantasy Camp in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dan played with some of the Yankee legends: Bobby Murcer Greg Olsen Jersey , Mickey Rivers, Ron Guidry, Moose Skowron and Catfish Hunter. The games were great and being on the same field with some of the players he had watched on TV or at Yankee Stadium was mesmerizing.

But what made the week particularly special was the friendship he nurtured with his hero. The Mick even gave Dan a nickname - ?Nails? for the scrappy, Lenny Dykstra-way that Dan played. While Mickey didn?t play in these games, he did spend a lot of time with all the campers. Dan took this time to get to know Mickey. He loved his down to earth quality. He loved his honesty. He loved being around him.

?Getting to know Mickey Mantle was as much fun as playing with the pros Kawann Short Jersey ,? Dan told me later.

In one of the games that Mickey was umpiring, Dan strolled to the plate with the bases loaded. His big chance was here and he didn?t miss the opportunity as he walloped a long double into the gap. He hit a rope, and as he glided into second base Mickey yelled to him, ?You hit the sh*^ out of that ball, Nails!?

This was like a call from God. Hearing his idol tell him how well he hit the ball was more fulfilling than Dan could ever have imagined.

What could be better than meeting and then hanging out with Mickey Mantle? How about being recognized as a ballplayer by your childhood hero?

It doesn?t get any better than that.
