  • No one is chatting at the moment.

    Event shots are small fry though. This kid is like a big fish in a small pond (not that he's cocky). But when he comes work for me, he'll be among 10 others who sometime work 12-hour shoots and stay up until 5 AM editing shots for clients.

    Evening, Storm.

    My gut instinct so far is saying to take Kid on. The status quo may be comfortable, but I think it would ultimately do more harm than good.

  • Chase Chase:
    I'm definitely taking this kid.

    Not sure if I owe my friend a courtesy call, though.

  • Eugene Eugene:
    I'd say have Friend talk to the kid first, so he understands kid's ambitions, than you two have your courtesy call.

  • Chase Chase:
    I know this friend's going to be disappointed I didn't tell him the minute I saw this kid come interview. That said, though, maybe it's a decent test of 'friendship'.

    Would probably be a lot easier if the window of his condo doesn't point directly to the window of my apartment...

  • Eugene Eugene:
    Yes, it's always disappointing to lose talent, but I don't think it's grounds for ending a friendship.

    Yeah, turns out Berlin is still a small town.

    Right...

    What I was getting at was if I begrudged every team lead who poached talent from me, I would have lost friends quick.
    Quote Link
  • Chase Chase:
    True, and this kid came to me, I didn't poach him. Ethically, we're solid.
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    Either way, when you give Friend the courtesy call, recommend he talk to Kid to understand Kid's ambitions.

  • Chase Chase:
    Probably the best angle for now, thanks for that.

    It's what I'm here for, when I'm not showing you night vision ocular injections.

    How did your interview go with the station?
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    Fairly good, but I ultimately didn't get it.

  • Eugene Eugene:
    They didn't specify they were looking for a head broadcast engineer, whereas I was approaching it like a junior position.
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    However, he did give me a few referrals. Even said at one point "You definitely talk the talk"

    My lack of paper certifications is holding be back some as well.
