Handle Staffing Agency calls quickly, but firmly

Be assertive, not arrogant, and stay in contact with the HR recruiter

Be friendly and open to new ideas

final pearls of wisdom
Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!' Then get busy and find out how to do it.- Theodore Roosevelt

Emergencies have always been necessary to progress. It was darkness which produced the lamp. It was fog that produced the compass. It was hunger that drove us to exploration. And it took a depression to teach us the real value of a job. - Victor Hugo

All Happiness comes from thinking of others. All suffering comes from thinking of one’s self. - Dalai Lama

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. - Dalai Lama
