This is the phone call we received at Swim Recruiting yesterday:

Swimmer- Hello, Swim Recruiting?

Stranger- Can YOU answer QUESTION for me?

Swimmer- I will do my best, what can I help you with?

Stranger- If I dive under 10 FEET is it still safe?

Swimmer- I’m sorry… we’re actually a finance, IT, and engineering recruitment company, Swim is just our name.

Stranger- You can’t give me any help on diving or swimming?

Swimmer- No, I’m sorry. How did you find us?

Stranger- Phone book. <click.. dial tone>

You have to love it when people do not do their research!!

The Swim Team with a huge cheque for JDRF

Our first post and what to put in it?? Well I think we should start with some awesome news. The Swim Recruiting team has raised $1845 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund by doing a sponsored walk! The team did the walk around a fairly sunny Stanley Park, and thanks to all our sponsors who generously donated to an extremely worthwhile cause, we managed to raise that substantial amount! Well done Swimmers!
