‘Twas the Night Before the PTC Luncheon

(A poem by Mike Willihnganz, based on The Night Before Christmas by Henry Livingston)

‘Twas the night before the PTC luncheon, and all through the HR shop
HR analysts were scurrying, so assignments would not drop

Requisitions for recruitments, were flowing in like air
With so many tests to develop, there was little time to spare

The support staff was trying, its best to assist
So critical recruitment deadlines, would not be missed

On the top of the list, are requests for firefighters and cops
These hires are critical, so that public safety will not flop

The job analyses have been completed, with KSAs and tasks linked
The job bulletins have been written, and recruitment ads have been inked
