Think about it. If you’re a job seeker, you’re expected to know about the relevant job boards for your industry, the… Continue

I was part of corporate experimental recruiting program in the late 90’s.
My job? Infiltrate a ring of IT user groups. Know them. Study them. Learn their habits and even live with them. I did just that for years. But then, something went terribly… Continue

Back in 1982, the number of H-1 visas was unlimited – can you imagine? All professionals were eligible for H-1 visas.

It was a market-based system which allowed employers to fill jobs in a global economy – a relatively simple program.
The Immigration Act of 1990 started the government control… Continue

The characteristic that I came up with is tunnel vision. I have it, there is no doubt… Continue
