Lessons Learned: Ethics

Posted on September 6, 2014 at 4:36pm 0 Comments

At least three people that I have placed in the past decade (still at their jobs, at the same companies) have made over $500,000 this year. This feels good to know -- some people benefited from my work...

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 5:00pm 1 Comment
