I don't drink midweek normally. It's just been a long, hard week so I felt I deserved a couple of beers.

What is a long and hard week in the recruitment world?

Mildly curious and not an attempt to mock you or the industry.

What is a long and hard week in any job? It's the same stuff I guess...but as I work for a construction firm, I get pulled around a little bit more into broader things, which I like, apart from when you're then stuck not doing what you're paid to do and can have a finger pointed...

Generally though, this week:
- Senior managers who are scared, incapable or desperate not to make a decision.
- Having more work than you should with each stakeholder expecting their work to be most important and delivered first.
- Being pulled into extra projects (oracle implementation) that are way outside the norm and involve a different set of idiots and a total lack of understanding of the subject from my perspective.
- A difficult boss. I'll leave that just as it is.
- Half arsed attempts at studying outside of normal hours. Failed miserably.

All the usual shit. I think I spend a lot of time each day just managing expectations. In fact, I should get into stakeholder management or engagement or something on Expo or similar. I'd kill it.
