"How frustrating! If you can't get them to come back to the fact that this is not really the 1st/only candidate, then you're stuck. Now you have to decide if you are going to find and send more people, and find out if the client is willing…"

Blogs, posts, and comments: A bunch of "regular" participants on here have brought knowledge, encouragement, and LAUGHTER! Sandra, Amy,…
