Invest In Ourselves!

Posted on August 12, 2011 at 1:53pm 0 Comments

There’s no sense in denying it, these are difficult times economically. Unemployment is stubbornly high, our fractious government can’t seem to agree on how to address our economic troubles, the global economy is in peril, and every day brings more dispiriting news. Some argue that large companies, sitting on huge stockpiles of cash, will be the answer once consumer demand rebounds but how will it rebound with so many people unemployed and with wages for the employed stagnant or receding?…

It's About Jobs

Posted on July 22, 2011 at 11:43am 7 Comments

I live in Washington, DC so it’s easy to make things political. This town manages to do that with nearly everything.

Help Our Veterans

Posted on May 27, 2011 at 2:47pm 2 Comments

On the occasion of a wonderful long weekend dedicated to family, food, and fun it’s imperative to remember what this holiday celebrates.

For those of us involved in…

Work It Like You Own It

There are times when all of us can get stuck in rote practices. Often we’ve had success doing something in a particular way, sometimes even repeated success, and it forges a belief that the same approach will continue to be successful. At those moments, once critical analysis indicates there is stagnation, it helps to approach the situation by thinking about how you might do things differently if you owned the business.

Doug,

 

Thanks for the add.  As you may have seen I am up in Annapolis recruiting medical and dental professionals for the US Navy.  Although I've been working in HR related fields for a while, this is my first time doing recruiting so I'm always up for tips or advice.
