It was Friday 6 pm. I was rushing to wrap up things at work. Last minute emails to complete. A call from our Director in China with a client issue. A Skype call from our Europe MD. And then my wife on the phone saying don’t forget to pick up the kids.
I race down the elevator to the under-building car park, juggling laptop, gym gear, mobile phone and security… Continue

RecruiterGuy has noticed over the years that the words “recruit” and” source” are sometimes used interchangeably.
