Mark was a top-performing sales representative with over 12 years of experience. He was gifted with not having a big ego, but he wanted to find a place which would appreciate his experience and skills. Mark was a “Purple Squirrel” who exceeded their highest expectations.
After weeks of interviews, senior staff members recognized his personality and genuineness and wanted to make him an offer. However, the owner, a very busy and hard-to-reach procrastinator, wanted to have the final say and refused to hire him until he had met Mark in-person. Knowing that his chances of getting hired had dropped, Mark began to lose hope in the company and felt they didn’t appreciate his talent.
