"The Treasury Department is under siege by an army of hired guns for banks, savings and loan associations and insurers — as well as for improbable candidates like a Hispanic business group representing plumbing and home-heating specialists. That last group wants the Treasury to hire its members as contractors to take care of houses that the government may end up owning through buying distressed mortgages."

Aren't recruiters hurting too?…

LinkedIn: The Site That Likes a Bad Economy


Here's a company I wish were public so everyone could share in its success: LinkedIn, the social network for business people.
