Conspiracy Theory


Is it true that certain headhunters ( mainly Australian) have an arrangement
with certain big NZ CDs not to approach their creatives...

Have heard that two prominent NZ CDs used to have a don't poach treaty...

I heard that if you poach CDs, Real Groovy WILL prosecute you.


Sorry.

Hi

This is a response to moving overseas without a job, buggered if I know why conspiracy theory has come up?

I moved to Melb 9 months ago without a job. Still looking for a GOOD one, so is my skilled engineering hubby. To be honest, he's found skill levels low, conditions pretty shit, there are few full time jobs.

TIP: Don't move just before Christmas. Hellloooo!!!

Melb ad scene quietish, and a bit of a closed shop apparently - I don't know anyone so it's been a slog...but no worries (as they say), freelancing and getting pretty constant work plus PT writing at a radio station. It's a start. Melbourne rocks!

It's a neither confirm not deny regarding headhunters.
But I do consider blowjobs from aspiring talent - girls prefered, but not necessarily.

If it is Australian then it is probably true, but not necessarily.

Does a finger up the arsehole count as well for aspiring talent

But seriously what's the deal

I hear that they take a percentage of your pay as well

Also you can't be approached or some shit unless you go through some head hunting agency wtf is up with that
