Songs for Recruiters: Good Help Is Hard To Find

There’s a lot of good music out there so we thought it would be cool if started to highlight some tunes that recruiters and HR folks can relate to. Our first entry this year comes from Death Cab for Cutie, an alt rock band that’s been around for a while. Check out “Good Help (is so hard to find)”.


You’ll never have to hear the word “no”
If you keep all your friends on the payroll
The non-disclosure pages signed
Your secret’s safe between those lines
The scaffolding will cheer and console you
But remember what your mother told you
That good help is so hard to find
For people that are so refined

You’re trying to turn into the skid
In this never-ending grid

There’s a long, slow fade
To a darkened stage
And I hear you say
“Only a fool gives it away”
Only a fool would give
Only a fool gives it away

You said you wanna stake out your claim
High above the city from where you came
Don’t you know the air’s so thin?
It starves the brain of oxygen
I know it’s such a dangerous place
For there are more ascensions than there is space
Angels causing accidents
The camera phones’ll document
But if I start to levitate
Pull me down with all your weight
