On the 1st Saturday of every month, Home Depot has a craft day where kids can come in and build a craft.
In the parking lot, there’s a group of day laborers hanging out looking for their next assignment.
If you’re the one who could use some help, how do you decide who to pick?
Is it based on who has the fanciest hammer, maybe their personal appearance, is it based on a short conversation in real-time, is it 1st come, 1st serve, or maybe it’s just random chance?
Does anyone really stand out in this setting?
How does one reduce the risk of making the right hire?
While I don’t think you’re looking to hang out at the Home Depot waiting for your next opportunity.
