Dude, I am helping you out! Don't be a Di@k!

I've been in the recruiting game for a while now.  Been in it since 1995.  I get that we are in an ungrateful profession.  It is always zero- to- hero and vice-verse. "What have you done for me lately" is just a part of what I expect to hear EVERY SINGLE DAY.  I get it.  I go back for the punishment willingly because I actually…See More

The other night I was out having dinner with my wife and friends.  It is always interesting when our group gets together.  The guys sit on one side of the table and the women sit on the other.
