If I had a dollar for every resume I've seen that had the phrase "detailed-oriented" in it, when the author clearly meant "detail-oriented", I would take a vacation to Wakatobi, Indonesia to scuba…Continue

What do Recruiters Search For?

Posted on September 19, 2014 at 11:50pm 0 Comments

Once again, in my traditional vein of 'shameless self-promotion', I offer another huge example of my vanity which is an excellent article I co-wrote, primarily as a researcher and provider of facts, and editor, with Jack Thornton (a splendid technical writer).
