Do you have a new candidate for your client today? Not a resume that looks good or the phone number of someone you heard “might” be looking. I’m talking about a qualified candidate…Continue
While ‘my’ eccentric Portland may actively embody the first two statements, it -along with the rest of the country- could still benefit from the third. Aside from the associated warm-n-fuzzy feelings, the slew of advantages from hiring locally just makes good…
