"Should I Stay or Should I Go?"

But when you do learn of a new opportunity or receive a new job offer do you find yourself humming this question posed by the Clash - “Should I Stay or… Continue

Be a Closer

I for one hate lose ends... Drives me crazy. Great article!

Author: Toni Bowers

Having an employee who can complete a task and tie up loose ends is a godsend to bosses. Are you that type of person?

Deer are Mean

Bob sent me this. I thought you might find this humorous, or at least interesting. On this day, one to make you smile a little. He was lucky to get off with just scatches and a few bumps. Deer are mean.

Recruiting In a Downturn Economy

As a third-party recruiter, I have received many articles and webinar invitations revolving around recruiting in a downturn economy. I would be interested in having an open dialogue with recruiters and corporate talent acquisition teams to see how they are handling our current economy.
